A lone bank robber held up the PNC Bank at Technology Square on Monday morning in Midtown.
According to the Atlanta police, a black male in his 20s entered the bank located at the corner of Spring and 5th streets around 9:15 a.m. and passed a hand-written note to a teller.
The note read, “give me all the cash in your drawer and do not give me any dye packs or trackers, and you have less than 45 seconds." The suspect took the money along with his note and fled on foot out of the bank.
According to the police, a lookout was broadcasted and an air unit responded to search for the suspect along with several ground units. Midtown Blue was able to briefly see the suspect running but lost sight of him.
Surveillance video from Georgia Tech depicted the suspect dropping the money near the Biltmore when a dye pack exploded. He then picked up the money fled towards West Peachtree St.
The suspect was wearing a black hoodie and black slacks or jeans, with black shoes and white soles. He was also wearing a green hat with yellow writing on it.
The bank was closed for the remainder of the day as the crime remains under investigation. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers.
