— Police asked for the public's help to solve an attempted robbery outside a bank near Cary Towne Center Wednesday afternoon.

A man jumped into a vehicle outside the BB&T bank, at 848 Southeast Maynard Road, shortly after noon and demanded money, police said. The occupants didn't give him money, and he fled from the scene on foot.

No one was injured, but authorities locked down nearby Cary High School for about an hour while they searched the area.

Police described the man as white, 35 to 42 years old, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, with short, brown hair. He was wearing a dark, zippered jacket with dark pants.

Anyone near the area during the time of the attempted robbery is asked to call Cary police at 919-469-4012 or Crime Stoppers at 919-226-3746. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards of up to $2,500 for anonymous tips that solve crimes.

    Quote from ElivsPrsleyJr: "I tell ya, when it comes to bank security cameras, it don't get much worse than that. With the new fees that banks are ripping the public off with, you would think they'd invest in some good camera equipment or at least position it at a better angle. I mean c'mon."

    ...or at least replace their aging, ancient, 1970's era bulky security cameras with an iPhone 4S with its 8 megapixel HD camera.

    Seriously, I carry around a better camera in my pocket on my cell phone than these banks have hanging from their ceilings. And I've only got 14 cents in my pocket.

    ++Crime happened yesterday, solved today according to Apex Lady's post but still the bashing and ridicule continues. I swear some people would rather chew glass than admit they were wrong about any person, place or thing. A pity really.

    ++++The Cary PD won't solve this until either A. They have a cell phone or laptop they can erase or plant evidence on or B. have a suspect they can shoot 17 times on his way out of a building. Milkman

    +++You are so right....

    When you're a hostage being walked out of a building with a gun to your head, be sure to let the cops know that you don't want them to shoot until the hostage-taker proves that his/her gun is real by shooting you first.

    Cary Police are so capable. Chief Liesmore and her detectives like Dismukes, Young and Daniels! What a bunch of Einsteins! Good thing they are safely in league with Wake County Prosecutors and their buddy Judge Gessner!
