Police Search For Bank Robbery Suspect

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. - Mobile Police are still searching for a man who robbed a bank Friday morning.

Police say it happened at about 9:00 a.m. when an unknown white male entered the Hancock Bank on Rangeline Road and demanded money from the teller. The teller complied and the subject left on foot in an unknown direction. Police say it did not appear that the suspect had a weapon.

At one point information led officers to believe the man had run into the Wal-Mart store in the shopping center. The store had to be put on lockdown for about 40 minutes. However the search came up empty.

"They weren't letting anybody in. and then everybody that came outside that fit the description, they searched them," said Barbara Saranthus, who was in the store at the time.

Investigators are on scene and in the area. Should anyone have information, please call (251) 208-7211.
