Police need help identifying man wanted in West Columbia bank robbery

WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

West Columbia Police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed a bank Friday morning.

Police say the First Community Bank on Meeting Street was robbed just after it opened at 9 a.m. Friday. The suspect entered the bank and gave the teller a note demanding money.

Police Chief Dennis Tyndall says when the teller did not respond to the man's demand, he jumped over the counter and grabbed cash from the cash drawer.

The man is described as a black male, about five feet ten inches tall and 150-160 pounds. Witnesses say he was 25-35 years old and was wearing a blue or black and white checkered shirt with red plaid shorts, ankle socks and white shoes.

He ran off, but police say he could have gotten into a maroon four-door vehicle that was parked in the area.

Surveillance photos of the robbery are attached to this story.

If you know anything that could help police find the suspect, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
