Authorities are looking for a suspect who walked into the First American Bank, Maysville, Saturday morning, June 9, and left with an undisclosed amount of money.
According to Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes, the robbery occurred shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday.
“The suspect walked into the bank’s lobby and handed one of the tellers a note, demanding money,” Rhodes told the News Star.
The note, according to the FBI, was handwritten and said, “Give me all the cash in your drawer.”
Rhodes said no weapon was produced by the suspect and no weapon was seen by the bank staff and one customer in the bank at the time of the robbery.
The teller, according to Rhodes, gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money from her money drawer and he turned and fled out of the bank.
The suspect is described as a heavy set white male between the ages of 25 and 30, and approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall. He was wearing a navy blue Old Navy t-shirt with gray trim, an Olive Drab Green colored baseball cap with a small symbol on the front of the cap and sunglasses.
The robbery is being investigated by the FBI, Maysville Police Department and the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office.
