Murfreesboro police searching for bank robber; reward offered

Police searching for the man who robbed Murfreesboro Fifth Third Bank around 11:17AM Friday morning (1/7/2022).  The bank is located at 2437 Old Fort Parkway, near Cason Lane and in front of the Kroger grocery store.  

PIO Larry Flowers noted, “He did not display a gun but handed a teller a note demanding money. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.”

Bank surveillance photos show a man dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black shoes, gray gloves, a tan hat, and a surgical mask.

The bank robber parked his getaway car next door at the Waffle House (between the bank and Walgreens).

Surveillance video shows the man getting into the car at the Waffle House and driving on the Old Fort Parkway toward Interstate 24. Police describe the vehicle as a dark-colored 2015-2019 Honda Accord.
