The Quincy Police Department is still searching for a man who robbed the First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust branch at 3233 Broadway on Wednesday. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken by a man described as a black male in his mid- to late-20s, about 6 feet tall with a thin build.

Police investigators are working with the Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center, the FBI and police agencies in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois. Investigators are looking at a possible correlation between Wednesday's holdup and bank robberies in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa since late November.
