Manhunt for Bank of America Robber

On Monday morning the Bank of America started 2003 with some very unwanted recognition. "First reported bank robbery here in Lubbock this year," said Sergeant Tony Gribben. He responded to a call that came in just after 9 a.m.

"A black male entered the bank, went to one of the tellers, advised that he'd like to make a withdrawal. The teller started the process, and then the gentleman set a canvas bag on the counter and basically demanded the cash from the drawer," said Gribben

Authorities say the man threatened that he had a gun, but never displayed it. No one was hurt in the robbery, and police believe that just one man was involved. "He's a black male, 5'10", thin build, medium complexion, wearing a tan hooded jacket, and was last seen heading eastbound from the bank," said Gribben.

Police refused to reveal just how much money the man made off with. Last summer, the bank was hit in June, and authorities say they'll compare notes from that incident. "We had somebody attempt a robbery last year. We'll be checking our files on that, our photographs of that person to see if there's any similarities involved," said Gribben.
