VERNON, Conn. (WTNH) — Vernon Police are investigating an attempted bank robbery on Thursday, and are searching for the note-carrying suspect who was caught on surveillance cameras.

According to police, a white man walked into the Finex Credit Union on Route 30, at around 9:15 a.m. The 911 caller told police that the man walked into the bank carrying a note which demanded money.

A clerk working at the Credit Union told the suspect that she did not have access to cash, police said. The suspect then ran out of the bank, without displaying a weapon, just with that note in hand.

Officers responded and searched the area for the suspect. A K9 Unit from the CT State Police assisted with the search, but the suspect was not found.

The suspect is described as a white male with a beard, wearing a green baseball cap, blue plaid shirt and blue jeans. The bank surveillance cameras captured pictures the suspect.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call Vernon Police Detective Charles Hicking at 860-872-9126 ext. 224. Callers can remain anonymous.
