LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock police are searching for a robbery suspect who escaped after taking an undisclosed amount of money from First United Bank at 98th & Indiana.

Police say he handed the teller a note demanding money. The note indicated that he had a weapon.

The suspect is described as about 5'7, between 160-180 pounds, white male, between 40 and 50 years old, clean-shaven, in dark blue jeans, a black baseball hat and a dark colored pull-over.

Witnesses say the suspect had a deformity on his bottom lip and a deformity on his left hand. He appeared to be holding his left hand as if he couldn't use it.

Police warn that this suspect could have a weapon, although he never showed one.

Police have also released pictures of the suspect vehicle. 

Police say, "It appears to be a darker color, GMC or Chevrolet Z71 model, 4 door, pickup. It also appears to have a black tool box in the bed."
