Authorities are searching for a white male in connection with a robbery at the Laurel Park branch of Carter Bank & Trust.

Henry County Sheriff Lane Perry said the incident occurred about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, when a man allegedly entered the bank branch on A.L. Philpott Highway (U.S. 58 east) and went up to a teller.

“He produced a note indicating it was a robbery, and he did produce what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun,” Perry said.

The man is described as having a close haircut. His hair is medium in color, and he is clean shaven, Perry said. The man is about 5-feet, 10 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

At the time of the incident, he wore a light gray-colored hooded sweatshirt that was not pulled up over his face and camouflage pants, Perry said.

The man is believed to be in his early to mid 20s, he added.

He took an undisclosed amount of cash, and left on foot in the direction of the rear of the bank, Perry said.

After using a K-9 unit to help search for the suspect, Perry said he was certain “he did not go far before he got into a car.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Henry County Sheriff’s Office at 638-8751, or Crime Stoppers at 63-CRIME (632-7463).

Rewards of up to $1,000 are available through Crime Stoppers for information related to unsolved crimes. The amount of any reward is determined by the nature of the crime and the substance of information provided.
