The Florence Township Police Department is currently in search of an alleged suspect.
The Florence police released a statement that on Nov. 21 at 1:20 p.m., an alleged suspect walked into the BB&T Bank located on the corner of Delaware Ave and S. Route 130, and used a handwritten note to demand the teller give him money.
The suspect then reached across the counter and grabbed the money out of the teller’s hand, but the suspect did not display a weapon and motioned into his vest as if he had a weapon, according to police. Officials reported that the suspect then left the bank and got into a white in color Chevrolet Malibu, believed to be between the years 2007-09, and bearing New Jersey registration.
On Nov. 23, police released an update on the investigation with photos of the alleged suspect’s vehicle.
