Surveillance photos, above and below, show a man robbing the U.S. Bank in Carrollton on Friday morning.
In less than a minute Friday, a man wearing a University of Kentucky cap and sunglasses pulled off a robbery at the U.S. Bank in Carrollton.
The robber escaped with less than $1,000, far less than the up-to $10,000 reward the bank might pay for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
State police said a man handed a bank teller a note demanding cash around 11:30 a.m. The note said the man was armed, but he never showed a gun during the robbery, Kentucky State Police Post 5 spokesman Brad Arterburn said.
Tellers gave the robber less than $1,000, Arterburn said.
The robber was in the bank, located at the corner of Highland Avenue and Fifth Street, less than a minute, Carrollton Police Officer Tim Gividen said.
Police were in the area and responded to the scene within a minute of receiving word of a robbery, but the man had already fled on foot.
No one was injured in the robbery.
The Carrollton Police Department - which leads the investigation - is looking for a white male, approximately 25-30 years old with a medium build. The suspect wore a short-sleeve gray shirt and blue jeans. He has a short beard.
The robber was last seen going into an alley near the bank and might have left the area in a gray Saturn, Arterburn said.
Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect should call the Carrollton Police Department at (502) 732-6621 or email Officer Tim Gividen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
