    Guns are illegal in banks. But this guy robbed it using a note. I think they need to ban paper in banks too.

    Um, the description is HE LOOKS LIKE THE GUY IN THE PICTURE!!!! But i'm sure the wingers can dream up some incredible conspiracy to throw at us.

    Did he have dark hair, light hair, what was the color of his skin tone? How tall? Approx weight? How about a simple, "we will post a description of the suspect as soon as one is available" if you don't have one to write about?!

    I guess WRAL does not really care to help locate the robber with such a description. Maybe the man had green skin with pink and white stripes.

    From ABC

    Catch him! The bank we use has on site security, it seems it is needed these days as bank robberies are a pretty common occurrence.

    White, black, hispanic, indian, asian...?

    How about if you see anybody huffing and puffing and clutching a bag of money you just let us know.
