He did not attempt to conceal his face and did not speak, according to deputies with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department who are investigating the case.

Chief Deputy Kenneth Lemaster said that after the robber handed a teller the note, he kept reaching below the counter as if he had a weapon. He did not show one, Lemaster said.

No witnesses reported seeing the robber's car or in which direction he headed, police said. Tracking dogs were taken to the scene.

Anyone with information may call the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department at 1-304-267-7000 or the anonymous Crime Solvers line at 1-304-267-4999.
