JACKSON, Wyo. -

Police released more information on the Jackson bank robber's vehicle on Tuesday.

The vehicle believed to be used by the suspect after Monday's incident at Jackson's US Bank is a 2007 to 2009 Toyota Tundra Crew Max with a slate metallic color and the SRS trim package. It has aftermarket rims, chrome Nerf bars and what looks to be some sort of decal across the camper shell glass. Police have not been able to identify the letters on the license plate from surveillance video. Pictures of the truck can be found on the wanted poster under "Related Content." (Mobile users may have to switch to full-site view.)

Police said the bank on Powderhorn Lane was robbed around 12:38 p.m.  No one inside the bank at the time of the robbery was hurt.

The robber left the scene on foot in an unknown direction, though police are associating him with the Toyota Tundra. 

He reportedly goes by the name of Charlie.  

Based on statements the robber made to bank employees while committing the robbery, Jackson Police Lt. Cole Nethercott said the man should be considered dangerous. 

The robber did not display a weapon.

Anyone who comes in contact with the man is encouraged to contact law enforcement, but not to approach the suspect.

He is described as white, tall, heavy set, wearing dark round Oakley glasses, a white button up shirt, has a goatee and moustache that is bushy gray or white, with dark hair.

He was wearing an English-style hat, possibly tan with light green checkering, tan pants and a large silver watch on his left wrist.

Witnesses said the robber spoke with a strong South African accent.  He was 6'2" tall and weighed a muscular 350 pounds.

The man was described as having large ears that sick out, especially on the left. 

Police were at the bank within 2 minutes, but the robber had already left.

Anyone with information should contact the Jackson Police Department at (307) 733-1430 or apearson@ci.jackson.wy.us
