A robber walked into a Shoals bank and 2 minutes later, walks out with an envelope full of cash.

Muscle Shoals Police Detectives released surveillance video, to help catch the robber.

In the video you can see the robber waiting in the lobby of the Compass Bank before he steps up to the clerk and whispers his demand. 

Detectives say the man asks for loose bills and when the bank teller returns with an envelope the robber slips out the door, undetected by any of the other customers inside.

Police say the man ditched the clothes he was wearing at a nearby dumpster, which is right across the street from bank.  It’s so close that officers say anyone looking out the front window may have seen where the man went next.

If you have any information about this robbery, give an anonymous call to the Shoals Area Crime Stoppers tipline at: 256-386-8685.

If information leads to an arrest as a result of your call, it could be worth a cash reward.
