KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Authorities are searching for the man suspected of robbing a First Tennessee Bank on Western Ave. Monday afternoon.
Officials said the suspect walked into the bank around 2:45 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money. He then allegedly reached across the counter and took money from the teller area. He then fled the bank and left the scene in a mid-90's burgundy sedan.
