A black male wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap walked into Traditions Bank in Priceville Wednesday afternoon, demanded money from a teller and escaped on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.
Priceville Assistant Police Chief Ron DeWeese said the suspect was approximately 5-foot, 9-inches and 140-160 pounds. He was dressed in a T-shirt and black pants and had a thin beard.
The robbery occurred at 3:38 p.m. while no customers were inside the bank. He handed the teller a note demanding money. She complied by placing bills in a bag and he left the building walking in an easterly direction.
DeWeese said Morgan County Sheriff’s deputies were on the scene conducting a search for the suspect with the aid of K-9 dogs.
He said no bank in Priceville had been robbed in the 24 years he has served on the police force.
