Person of interest in bank robbery

TARBORO — As of Wednesday, no arrests had been made in last Friday's robbery of Tarboro Savings Bank, but Tarboro Police Chief Damon Williams did confirm they have a person of interest in the case.

Detectives began their investigation around 9:56 a.m. Friday when a black male standing approximately 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighing approximately 200 pounds walked into Tarboro Savings Bank and handed the teller a note demanding money, according to a press release issued Friday afternoon.

The press release didn't state if the suspected robber showed a weapon of any kind during the robbery.

The release stated that the suspect had a light to medium skin complexion and was wearing a red Chicago Bulls hat with a black brim, black leather coat, blue jeans and tan boots.

According to surveillance photos, the suspect appeared to be wearing a black wig and eyeglasses, but that information wasn't released by the department.

When the suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, his direction of travel or mode of transportation was never determined by law enforcement according to Williams.

According to sources, none of the employees in the bank were harmed or injured during the crime.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspect. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

If you have any information about the robbery contact the police department at 641-4247.
