The Hickory Police Department is searching for a man who allegedly robbed the BB&T on U.S. 70 on Monday afternoon.
A white male with a light-colored complexion entered the bank around 1 p.m. and gave a bank teller a note demanding money. HPD Sgt. Robert George said the note indicated the man had a weapon, but no weapon was shown.
George said the bank had several customers and employees present at the time of the robbery, but no one was injured.
The man took the undisclosed amount of money and left the bank on foot and headed towards 15th Avenue. Police said a witness saw a man get into a dark gray Honda CRV. The alleged track was confirmed by a K-9 unit on the scene.
Police are searching for a white male with brownish-red hair, 6'2 to 6'3 in height and weighing 200 to 225 pounds. He is expected to be between 25 and 35 years old. He was wearing a white Eco shirt, khaki pants, white shoes and a Carolina Panthers white, black and blue baseball hat.
