VALDOSTA -- Police are looking for a man who robbed a North Valdosta Road bank Thursday and then fled the scene.

The robber was described as a white male about 5-feet-9 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds, said Lt. Bernard Robinson of the Valdosta Police Department. The man wore a flowered shirt and sunglasses.

The man fled the scene in a silver Toyota or Nissan vehicle heading south on Ashley Street.

The man entered Citizens Community Bank at about 3:45 p.m. and approached a teller. The man handed the bank employee a note which demanded money. After the teller complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, the man walked out of the building and drove away.

No one was hurt in the incident, Robinson said, and no weapon was displayed during the robbery.

Valdosta police immediately issued an alert to other law enforcement agencies including the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office and Georgia State Patrol.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Crime Tip Line at 293-3091.

The last bank robbery in Valdosta occurred May 19 at Park Avenue Bank on Baytree Road. In that incident, a man also slipped a note to a teller, saying he was robbing the bank.
