‘I’m sorry but I’m desperate:’ Atlanta cops seek failed bank robber

Atlanta Police are searching for a man who slipped a Chase Bank teller a note demanding $200. 

The man walked inside the bank on April 19 and handed the teller a withdrawal slip that read: “I’m sorry but I’m desperate. $200. I’m gone,” according to an Atlanta police incident report. 

Following protocol, the teller walked away to inform his manager, but when he returned the man was gone, according to the report.

Surveillance footage shows the main waited about 45 seconds before he walked away. Police said he did not have a weapon.

Police said the suspect is between 30 and 40 years old and standing about 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He also has brown hair and was wearing a dark jacket. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477 or online at www.stopcrimeatl.com. Tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the suspect.
