Hudson police sought the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly walked out of a local bar with bags of cash.

The suspect, described as a white man about 6 feet tall in his late 30s or early 40s, stole the money Sunday at Pudge’s Bar, according to Hudson police.

The incident occurred at 10:18 p.m., when the man went into the bar to buy alcohol, according to a police alert sent out Tuesday morning.. At some point, he went into the owner’s office and took “several bank bags containing large sums of money,” the alert states.

Hudson Police Sgt. Glen Hartman called the theft “pretty gutsy,” considering the bar was occupied at the time. The man apparently waited for the bartender to be distracted and slipped away to the downstairs office, Hartman said.

However, he said what police consider an unusually clear surveillance image captured of the man during the incident should lead to tips.

“We’re fairly confident that we should be able to get a suspect,” Hartman said.

The man was last seen wearing a maroon hooded jacket, camouflage overalls and a dark blue knitted cap, according to the alert.

He was seen entering the bar’s parking lot in a smaller two-door light-colored vehicle. The vehicle had a convertible roof, police said.

Hudson police encouraged anyone with information about the incident to contact Hartman at 715-386-4771 or by email at  ghartman@ci.hudson.wi.us .
