Metro Police and the FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force are working to identify the man who robbed Reliant Bank’s 6005 Nolensville Pike branch Tuesday afternoon.

The suspect, who is described as possibly Hispanic, is about 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds, police said. He was wearing dark sunglasses, a long-sleeved black shirt and a black ball cap.

Police say he approached the teller at 1:40 p.m. with a robbery demand note. The teller complied, and the suspect fled in a red car.

Anyone with information about the suspect is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-Crime or the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at 232-7500.

The hispanic promoting Tennessean wouldn't publish it was a hispanic. They just reported height and weight.

Teller should have asked robber for photo identification, a second form of identification and a thumb print. Make the robber jump through the same red tape law abiding citizens must do to cash a check.

Had this been a Regions bank, I hope the teller would keep $5 if stolen money was greater than $150. Since Regions now takes $5 if a presented cashed check exceeds $150.

The robber never even begins a transaction in these cases...he just says "hands up" And that's that.

I'll keep that in mind when next cashing a check. Hand a check to the teller and demand my money. No identification, no endorsement--just like the robber.

Wrong you are brfa...The Tennessean will run a story along these lines...."Imagine sitting at your breakfast table and telling your wife, I am being arrested and deported for changing lanes without using my blinker after I robbed a bank. If only I had a driver's license this never would have happened to me."
