Albany -- Investigators now think they know who robbed an Albany bank Friday. They've issued an arrest warrant. They're looking for 55-year old Kenneth Edward Goff.

The picture on the right was taken four years ago when he was serving two years in a Florida prison for grand theft. Now look at bank surveillance pictures of the man who robbed the First State Bank of Albany last week.

The robber passed a note to a teller and pointed a gun at an employee who chased him out of the bank. Lt. Kenn Singleton said "Information that was ascertained from people in the community or from other agencies were put together, and this is how they came up with this subject."

Investigators tell us Goff has been a suspect in several bank robberies across the Southeast. Sources say he has a violent crime history and may have even worked as a hit man.

Investigators think he may have been living in the Acworth area before robbing the Albany bank last week.
