For the second time this week, someone has used a note to rob a Wells Fargo bank in Raleigh.
This time it was the Wells Fargo branch at 3400 Spring Forest Road. Police say a man handed a teller a robbery note a little before 12:40 p.m. and left with an undisclosed amount of cash, last seen walking toward a nearby Home Depot store.
The man did not show a weapon, and no one was injured, police said.
Police described the man as black, 30 to 35 years old with a thin build and standing 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a white cap, dark jacket and sunglasses.
On Monday, a man handed a robbery note to a teller at the Wells Fargo branch at 2600 Hillsborough Street, across from N.C. State University, just before 10:30 a.m. Police have not made an arrest in Monday’s robbery and say they don’t think the two cases are connected.
