— Durham police detectives are hoping some crystal-clear photographs will help identify a man they said tried to rob a bank Monday morning.

The incident happened about 9:30 a.m. at a PNC Bank branch at 2313 N.C. Highway 54.

Police said the man entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. The teller did not give him anything, and he left the bank. No weapon was displayed.

The bank’s security video captured several sharp images of the man, who is described as in his 20s, wearing dark pants, a gray and black or navy top, a hat and gloves. Investigators said they think he ran a short distance before driving away in a white pickup truck.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call 919-560-4415, extension 29312, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash for anonymous tips that lead to arrests.
