FARRAGUT, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Community South Bank in Farragut was robbed Tuesday afternoon, and police are looking for the suspect.

It happened around 2:20 p.m. in the 11,000 block of Kingston Pike, and investigators think he's the same man who robbed a nearby BB&T bank on May 2.

The FBI says the white male suspect entered the bank and demanded money. No weapon was seen, and he took of with an undetermined amount of money.

Police are looking for a white male, 5' 8", thin with an athletic build. He was wearing a dark gray jacket.

Witnesses say he drove off in a newer model, full-size, silver BMW.

So far there is no description of the suspect available, and no information has been released about whether a weapon was used in the heist.
