Officers said bank employees told them the suspect first asked for information about opening a new account, according to the report. When a bank employee told him that they could help, he handed over a green folder, the report says.
“When he opened the green folder there was a piece of notebook paper on top,” the report says. “The piece of paper had a hand written not stating ‘No alarm will shoot everybody give me the money now.’”
The suspect did get money from the bank but the report does not say how much.
Police are continuing their investigation.
