Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Lockport police are searching for a suspect who robbed the M&T Bank branch at 118 Walnut St. late Friday morning.

The suspect is described as a white male. He was wearing blue jeans, a black Champion jacket, black hat and sunglasses. The suspect was last seen running southbound on Pine Street.
