Leads turn up in attempted¿robbery
PERRYVILLE — Police say they have some leads but are still searching for the man involved in a peculiar attempted robbery Friday at the Farmer’s National Bank branch in Perryville.
Perryville Police Chief Charles Parks, whose department is handling the investigation, believes authorities will be able to recover fingerprints from a note shown to a bank teller and could be able to get DNA from a bandana the man dropped at the scene.
Shortly before 2 p.m. Friday, police said a white male between 25 and 35-years-old approached the teller outside the branch on East Second Street and told the teller to get money from the ATM¿machine.
The suspect showed a note demanding money, but the teller repeatedly told the man he could not access the cash in the machine. The suspect indicated he had an accomplice with him before running away without taking any money.
Parks did not say what the note stated specifically, but he said it indicated the suspect’s original intent was to go inside the bank. The suspect didn’t threaten bodily harm or suggest he had a weapon, Parks said.
Parks said anyone with information about the attempted robbery can call the Perryville Police Department at (859) 238-1220.
