MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — The US Bank in Mt. Juliet was robbed on Tuesday when a man passed a note to the teller which demanded cash.

Police arrived at the bank on Pleasant Grove Road around 12:50 p.m. on January 8 after the bank employee called 911 about a robbery.

The investigation revealed that the suspect entered the bank and walked up to the front counter. He then slid the note to the employee and after being given the money, the suspect ran out of the bank.

According to police, the suspect fled the bank area on foot but was not located, leading investigators to believe that a getaway vehicle was waiting nearby.

The suspect is described as a man with a medium build who is possibly in his 40's or 50's. He was wearing a ball cap, black jacket, white shirt, and blue jeans at the time of the robbery. This description matches that of a suspect in bank robberies in both Johnson City, Tennessee and Asheville, North Carolina.

Police believe the suspect may be targeting banks along the interstate corridors.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the MT. Juliet Police Department at (615) 754-2550.
