n Crime Stoppers needs help solving a bank robbery. At the end of August, a masked gunman entered the Renasant Bank at 3002 McCullough Blvd. Once inside he confronted the lone teller, threatened her with a black semi-automatic pistol and demanded money. A customer attempted to move inside an office, but was spotted by the gunman and ordered to lie on the floor.
A second bank employee was ordered to empty her cash drawer. All the money was placed into a bag labeled “Peoples Bank” and the robber fled in a white passenger van, possible a Dodge Caravan, westbound on McCullough.
The suspect is described as a white male, in his 20s, about 5-feet 8inches tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a black shirt, black hat, camouflage bandana and mirrored sunglasses.
If you have any information on who is responsible for the bank robbery, please call Crime Stoppers at (800) 773-TIPS. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 to the first caller with information leading to an arrest in this or any other major crime. For more information visit the Web site at www.crimestopprsnems.com
