Man robs Seymour bank

FBI and BCSO search for bandit

The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Blount County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s assistance in locating the man who robbed the BB&T Bank in Seymour on the afternoon of Nov. 9.

At about 1:50 p.m. on Nov. 9, a white male entered the BB&T Bank at 10232 Chapman Highway. He presented a demand note to a teller in which he claimed to have a gun. He placed an undetermined amount of money in a light green bag, possibly a pillow case, and left on foot. He was last seen going east on Parrot Road behind the bank, where he may have gotten into a blue Ford Escort driven by a white female. Witnesses describe the man as having an olive complexion, in his mid-20s, 5 foot 8 inches to 5 foot 9 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds, wearing a zippered camouflage jacket with a hood. The robber had on a dark ball cap with an emblem on it, aviator-style sunglasses, and had a thin mustache.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 865-544-0751, or the Blount County Sheriff’s Office at 865-983-3620. The public is reminded not to approach the individual, but to contact law enforcement.
