Wachovia Bank robbery today
At around 12:00pm today the little Wachovia Bank on 10th Street, across from Martha Jefferson Hospital, was robbed. City spokesperson Ric Barrick says that a 6-foot tall white male with “scruffy” facial hair, and wearing jeans, a white T-shirt, and a red and black stocking cap, demanded money from a teller with a note. The bandit then fled on foot down 10th Street and hoped into a waiting vehicle which headed out of town. Anyone with information should contact police or Crimestoppers at 977-4000.
