Police are searching for a robbery suspect after he entered a bank on Thursday and demanded money from the teller.
The suspect waited in line upon entering the bank. Once he reached the front, he presented the teller a note indicating that he had a weapon. Another customer asked the suspect if everything was okay. The suspect then exited the bank without any money.
Police say the suspect was a white male in his early thirties with a medium build. He was wearing a black long-sleeved shirt with black pants, gray or brown shoes, a black backpack, a straw gardening-style hat and sunglasses. 
The suspect may have been seen on foot near Ann Road and Durango Drive.
