COVINGTON, Ga. - Investigators with the Newton County Sheriff's Office are looking for the suspect they believe entered the Synovus Bank, located at 3207 Salem Road SE, and demanded money.

According to a NCSO news release, the suspect, described as a black male, 6'1", 190 pounds, wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey sweat pants, wearing clear latex gloves, with a stocking over his face and a knit cap on the top of his head, left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

"The male also obscured his identity from the bank's video surveillance with an opened striped umbrella," according to the release. "The male left the bank on foot in an unknown direction of travel."
