STATESVILLE, N.C. – Statesville Police are investigating the third bank robbery in the area in two days.
Around 3:20 Wednesday, Statesville Police responded to the Piedmont Credit Union in the 200 block of South Meeting Street.
Police say the suspect approached the counter, produced a Ziploc bag and demanded cash. When the teller complied, the suspect fled on foot, northbound towards Court Street.
The suspect, who has not yet been located, is described as being a black male, standing about 5-foot-10, weighing 180 pounds with a medium skin complexion. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hoodie, blue jeans and shoes that “had red in them”, along with white sunglasses.
The suspect never produced a weapon, and no injuries were reported.
Video from the robbery is still being processed, officials say, and surveillance photos are expected to be released sometime Wednesday evening.
