KPD: Heavyset man robs North Knoxville bank

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) Knoxville Police may have caught the man suspected of being the "Black Tape Bandit", but they're now searching for another suspect in another bank robbery.

This one with a much larger description.

Witnesses at the SunTrust Bank on Merchants Drive describe this suspect as weighing over 300 pounds.

KPD spokesperson Darrell DeBusk says the man handed a teller a note around 10:30 a.m. and demanded money. DeBusk says the suspect had a reddish beard, wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, and blue jeans.

He fled the scene in an older model SUV.

If you have any information, call Knoxville Police at (865) 215-7212.

DeBusk says this robbery does not appear connected in any way to the "Black Tape Bandit".
