Law enforcement officers are looking for the suspect who committed an armed robbery at a Georgiana bank Monday afternoon.

The incident started around 2:19 p.m. when the man walked into the Trustmark Bank located at 412 West Street, Highway 106. He spoke with a teller about opening an account, but when the employee started going through the process, he pulled out a black, semi-automatic handgun. He demanded 50 and 100 dollar bills. 

Investigators say the robber made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, fleeing the scene on foot down Hwy. 106. He is believed to have been picked up by a vehicle. 

The Alabama Department of Corrections, Butler County Sheriff's Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations are assisting the police department with the bank robbery investigation.

The suspect has not been located, but a blue jumpsuit was found in a nearby wooded area along the highway. The jumpsuit matches the description of what the suspect was wearing at the time of the robbery.

An investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone who can identify the suspect, or who knows of his current whereabouts should call the local police or Crime Stoppers at 215-STOP. A tip could lead to a cash reward.
