SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Authorities are searching for the man they believe robbed a Sevierville bank in mid-November and is also suspected of robbing the same Dollar General store twice last month.

He is also suspected of robbing the Dollar General Store in Boyd's Creek Highway about a week before the bank robbery and again on November 28. The first time he reportedly used a gun, while the second time witnesses said he brought in a knife.
