Roll … Tide?
A few minutes before 6 p.m. Saturday, a man wearing a University of Alabama hat walked into the Publix store at Old Peachtree Road and Buford Highway in Duluth. He approached the counter at the SunTrust Bank inside, Duluth police said, and asked to “withdraw a large sum of money.”
The teller asked for a withdrawal slip and an ID.
“The offender presented a grey Bank of America bank bag and a pre-written note requesting money or the teller would be shot,” Detective Charles Hamrick said in an emailed statement. “When the teller hesitated, the male gestured to his waist with his right hand, indicating that he had a firearm.”
The man — who is also believed to have robbed a Woodstock bank on Feb. 13 — fled. But the encounter was captured in crystal clear surveillance photos.
Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to contact Hamrick at 678-512-3726.
