Around 11:30 Monday morning, a man calmly walked in the Bank of America in Moultrie, robbed it, and drove away with the money. Investigators found the getaway car, but they're still looking for the suspect. Police think the man is armed and may still be in Moultrie.

The Moultrie Bank of America and now a crime scene. Police say a man walked into the building with a sack and a note demanding money. "He was just looking at the other customers, and then wrote a note to the clerk, saying that he wanted hundreds, fifties, tens and twenties," said Sgt. Roger Lindsay of the Moultrie Police Dept.

The clerk believed the man had handgun in the bag and handed him the money. The suspect did not harm anyone, and left the bank quietly. Deputies say he drove off in a teal colored GEO Storm.

 They did find the car in Moultrie, but are still looking for the suspect.

They say bank surveillance video does show the man, described as a black male, about 6 feet, and 180lbs., wearing a white hat, dark pants and a light colored shirt.

If you have any information about the case you should contact either the Moultrie Police Department or Colquitt Co. Sheriff's Dept.

Police have questioned witnesses who were in the bank during the robbery. They have also questioned a Moultrie man but he is not a suspect.
