Georgia Heritage Bank in Dallas robbed

Posted: Updated:

Police are searching for a man who robbed the Georgia Heritage Bank in Dallas.

It happened just before 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday along Highway 278.

Dallas police officer Bill Gorman said the robber claimed to have a gun, but didn't show anything to the bank tellers.

The robber looked like he was in his late 30s, according to witnesses.

He was wearing a baseball cap and a brown, hooded sweater and had a stocky build.

Police were able to track him until he crossed some railroad tracks and dogs lost his trail.

Police said this is the first bank robbery to occur in Dallas in more than 10 years.
