Lubbock police are now trying to solve the 5th bank robbery of the year. This one happened at the People's Bank in central Lubbock just before lunch on Monday.

Just after 11 Monday morning, a white male walked through the front doors of People's Bank at 34th and Memphis demanding money. The suspect handed the teller a note, stating he had a gun and demanded money. He never displayed the weapon, and escaped on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was last seen running westbound in the alley behind the bank, an employee at Vernon's Car Stereo next door, saw the suspect running.

"I was doing a little work in the back and I looked out of the corner of my eye and saw a guy running by with what looked like a briefcase in his hands. Then the cops came down the alley and asked which way he went." What did you think when they told you he'd just robbed a bank? "I guess I started thinking about what I could've done, but then again he might have had a gun," said Casey Stokes, an employee at Vernon's.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20's. He was wearing a fake beard, a dark blue baseball cap, sunglasses, a long sleeve dark green shirt, and blue jeans. He's about 5'11 with a thin build.

If you were in the area or have any information that could assist police you are urged to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
