The Covington Police are one the lookout for two men in connection with the robbery of First Georgia Community Bank on U.S. Highway 278.
At approximately 10:30 a.m. Thursday, a white male suspected to be in his 50s or 60s entered the bank and handed a female teller a note demanding an undisclosed amount of money.
"His hand was positioned near the waistband where the teller believed he was gripping a gun," said CPD Lt. Wendell Wagstaff. "The teller perceived him in a threatening manner."
After the teller gave the robber the money, the man walked outside where he was joined by another white male. The two entered a newer model single cab white Ford Ranger and fled the scene toward Pace Street. When the men were gone, the teller hit a panic button to alert the police. Officers arrived on scene in just over a minute.
Wagstaff said the teller did everything right, as she was trained to hand the money over.
"When people come in, they are not wearing ski masks and waving a gun anymore," Wagstaff said. "They don't want to be noticed until they are through."
The robber was described as 6 foot 2 inches tall and wearing glasses, a grayish brown flannel shirt, blue pants and a black baseball cap with a rectangular design.
His accomplice was described as a heavy set man in his 40s.
Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to call the CPD at (770) 786-7605 or the investigating officer Sgt. Arvo Bowen at (770) 385-2122.
