Garden City Bank Robbed

The FBI is asking for your help in finding a suspect in a bank robbery. Agents say just after 9am yesterday morning, a man walked into the Wachovia Bank on Augusta Avenue in Garden City and handed one of the tellers a note demanding cash. He ran out of the bank after getting the money.

Garden City police sealed off the front of the building and searched the surrounding area using a Savannah-Chatham K-9 unit, but the suspect managed to get away.

This is a picture of the suspect taken by the bank surveillance camera. Witnesses say he's heavy set, in his late 30s and about 5'6" to 5'8". He was last seen wearing a yellow and black head scarf and a dark jacket.

If you recognize this man, call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020. A reward is being offered.
