Capital City Bank robber

The Gainesville Police Department is continuing to look for a man who robbed a bank Tuesday and is still at large.   Police officers say a man wearing camouflage pants walked into the Capital City Bank at 1417 North Main Street about 1:45 Tuesday afternoon.  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.
