Police seek Lincolnton bank robbery suspect

Limcolnton police and the FBI are looking for a man who robbed a bank Wednesday morning.

According to police, the Peoples Bank branch in the 700 block of N.C. 27 West was robbed by a man about 9 a.m. Police said the man did not show a weapon but threatened a teller.

The suspect was described as a white male, between 5 feet 4 and 5 feet 8, with a thin build. He was in his mid 30s to early 40s and was either bald or had very close-cut light-colored hair.

The man was wearing a white T-shirt, a brown hoodie, red shorts, and white sneakers.

Police said the man was seen driving away in a burgundy or red 2004 Nissan Altima, with N.C. license tags ZWK-5567. Police said that car had been reported stolen earlier Wednesday in Gaston County.
