Man tries to rob Yadkin Bank
A little more than a week after a similar-looking suspect robbed the Carter Bank & Trust on North Roxboro Street, a scruffy-faced man in his 50s or 60s on Wednesday tried to rob the Yadkin Bank on East Carver Street.
The man entered the bank Wednesday just before 3 p.m., gave the teller a note demanding money, but then left without taking anything, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.
He was described as a black male wearing a beige jacket with a fur collar, a blue hat, khaki pants and black shoes. The suspect in last Tuesday’s robbery seemed to resemble that description.
“Investigators are looking into the possibility that the same person may have been involved in both bank incidents,” Michael said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Walsh at 919-560-4582, ext. 29248 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
