A man wearing a black and white sock on his right hand is wanted in connection with an attempted credit union robbery on Friday.

According to the West Columbia Police Department, the man, described as a 20 to 30-year-old black male between 5'8" and 5'10", entered the South Carolina Credit Union on 12th Street around 11:45 a.m.

Police Chief Dennis Tyndall said the man told the teller to empty the drawer. However, Tyndall says he does not believe the man made off with any money from the credit union.

Officials say the man fled on foot, but is believed to have gotten into a white Ford SUV with the license plate tag featuring the letters LAR.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the West Columbia Police Department at 794-0721 or Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
