FARMINGTON — The FBI is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in today's robbery of a local credit union.

Police were dispatched at 1:42 p.m. to the U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union, 3024 E. Main St. in Farmington, after receiving reports that a man robbed the bank while armed with a knife, according to an FBI press release.

The suspect, who fled the bank on foot, is described as a white man who is between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall.

He was wearing a tan shirt with a tan, long-sleeve jacket over it, a brown hat, black cargo pants, black sunglasses and blue gloves and had a bandanna over his mouth, according to police scanner traffic.

Farmington police on Thursday released this still from a surveillance video of the man suspected of robbing U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union in Farmington.

Aaron Lameman, A 31-year-old employee at the nearby Rent-A-Center, said he saw a man matching the suspect's description as he was arriving for work.

"He jumped in front of my car," Lameman said.
