Bible-Toting Bank Robber On The Loose, Preying On Financial Institutions

He apparently didn't read the part that says, "Thou shalt not steal."

You shouldn't bring a sandwich to a banquet, but what about a Bible to a bank robbery?

Police in Nashville are looking for help to track down a man accused of robbing a bank while carrying a Bible.

The suspect walked into a Bank of America Friday afternoon around 2:30 p.m., Bible in hand, and gave a teller a note, according to a police press release.

After the teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money, the man fled the scene in a red, older model two-door vehicle.

The Bible was left at the bank, but it is unknown if that was by accident or intelligent design.

No other weapon was seen.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 40s with light brown or red hair, standing around 5 feet, 5 inches and weighing near 200 pounds.

Anyone who recognizes the robber from the surveillance photos is asked to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
