The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’ 9” tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing a dark polo shirt, jeans and a bandana. Investigators also say the suspect threatened that he had accomplices waiting at employee vehicles.

The teller complied and the suspect took off on foot, with an undisclosed amount of cash, heading west.
