Although he did not show a weapon, he gave the teller a note demanding money and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
He’s described as white, 5’11, slim build, and 35 to 45 years of age. He had dirty blonde hair sticking out from a white and blue cap, had a white shirt, and the camo pants. Although no weapon was shown police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
