Police seek information about bank robbery suspect

Police are seeking the public’s help to identify a man who robbed the Bank of America Thursday in St. Marys. They’re also looking for a woman who was later seen with him in a car.

The man, dressed in all black, walked into the bank alone Thursday afternoon and approached a teller, according to a press release from the St. Marys Police Department. He handed the teller a handwritten note asking for money and received an undetermined amount. He left the bank and fled the area on foot.

SMPD officers and Camden County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded at about 1:25 p.m. and searched the area without finding the suspect. As they began investigating, officers received a report of a man and woman acting suspiciously on a side street several blocks from the bank. Officers went to the area and witnesses said a gold four-door sedan, possibly a Buick, had pulled into the side street. A man got out of the driver’s seat and got into the truck. Witnesses identified the man as the one from the bank.

A woman also got out of the car on the passenger side, ran around the car and jumped into the driver’s seat. She drove toward Spur 40 and was last seen driving north on Spur 40.

The man is described as a white male with dirty blond hair who is about 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 7 inches tall, medium build and a cross tattoo on the inside of his left arm. He was wearing a black shirt and black pants.

The woman is described as a white female with blond hair. She had on a white shirt with red writing on it.

Anyone with information that could help identify the suspects is asked to call SMPD at (912) 882-4488 or the anonymous tip line at (912) 576-0565.
