PULASKI, TN (WAFF) -
Tennessee and federal authorities are searching for a bank robber.
A man robbed 1st National Bank in Pulaski around 1 p.m. Wednesday.
The offender indicated he had a weapon, but did not show one.
Police are canvassing the area as they search for the robber.
Some schools were placed on lockdown as a result of the search.
This is the second bank robbery in this area in as many days.
It is unknown if this robbery is connected, but the FBI now thinks the man who tried to rob an Albertville bank on Tuesday is connected to two other robberies.
The suspect is a black man, around 5'3" with a bandage on his nose and Yankee's ball cap.
He left Cadence Bank without any money.
The Guntersville bank robbery happened back in August. The robber held up the People's Bank on Highway 431.
He handed the teller a note stating he had a gun and demanded money. The crook took the cash and ran.
The robbery in Priceville happened at the Traditions Bank last month.
Police said the robber walked into the bank, handed the teller a note, said he had a weapon and demanded money. He was wearing a Yankee's ball cap.
The only three cases officially connected are the Albertville attempted robbery, the Guntersville robbery, and the Priceville robbery.
