(WVLT) - There has been another bank robbery in East Tennessee.
The Knoxville Division of the FBI says at about 2:00 p.m. Friday afternoon, a man went into the BB&T Bank on Chapman Highway in Blount County, presented a note claiming to have a gun and demanded money.
He put money in a light green bag, possibly a pillow case, and left on foot.
He may have gotten into a blue Ford Escort driven by a white woman.
The suspect, seen in the surveillance picture above, is white, in his mid 20's, 5'8''-5'9'', and 150 pounds.
He was wearing a zippered camouflage jacket with a hood, a dark colored ball cap with an emblem, aviator style sunglasses, and has a thin mustache.
This robbery was the third Friday in the region.
At about 9:00 a.m., someone robbed the BB & T Bank in Knoxville.
