MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) — The Madison Police Department is investigating a robbery at the Regions Bank on Madison Boulevard after authorities received reports of a man with a box.
Captain Lamar Anderson with the Madison Police Department confirmed with News 19 that around 10:30 a.m. a man walked into the bank wearing a wig and a face covering, saying he then placed a small box on the counter and demanded money.
Anderson said bank employees gave police the impression there was a bomb in the box.
He says they are looking into the possibility of Tuesday’s incident being connected to a robbery that happened in May.
There is no information about what the suspect looks like or what they drove, Anderson said, “because he wore a mask.”
Anderson said they were able to determine that the box was non-lethal and encouraged anyone with information to give them a call at (256) 772-5674.
