ROGERSVILLE — Police are searching for a man they say walked into the Regions Bank just after 3:30 this afternoon, told a teller he wanted to make a withdrawal and indicated that it was a robbery.
Rogersville Police Chief Terry Holden said the robbery took place at 3:36 p.m. at the bank which is located on Lee Street.
“No one was hurt and the man left as soon as he got the money,” Holden said.
He said the man is described as a black man wearing glasses, a mustache and a black golf cap with “Callaway” in white.
The chief said the man was also dressed in all dark clothing.
Holden said local, state and federal law enforcement agencies are continuing to search the area for the suspect.
“He never showed a weapon, but he implied to the teller that he had a gun,” Holden said.
The chief said there were customers in the bank, which is across from Stanfield’s Steakhouse, when the robbery happened.
Holden said the suspect is believed to be the same man who robbed banks in Priceville, Guntersville, Cullman, Albertville and Pulaski, Tenn. Those robberies occurred in the past four months.
Authorities said that after a robbery attempt Monday in Cullman, the man left in a dark blue four-door Kia passenger car with a Madison County (47) license plate.
Cullman police said the man failed to take any money during Monday’s 1 p.m. robbery attempt at Traditions Bank on Second Avenue Northwest in Cullman.
He fled after another bank employee realized there was a problem and approached the teller station the man was robbing.
Anyone knowing anything about the bank robbery is asked to call Rogersville police at 256-247-8863 or Shoals Crime Stoppers at 256-386-8685.
