Police on St. Thomas are searching for a suspect in an attempted bank robbery Friday morning of the Citibank at Havensight Shopping Mall.
Deputy Chief Theodore Carty said the incident took place around 9:30 a.m.
“What happened was an individual walked in, gave the teller a note saying, ‘Give me $5000 in the name of almighty God.’ Of course they wouldn’t give it to him so he walked out," Carty said.
A later report from Jose Garcia, territorial Police chief, said the man was recognized as a former bank customer who "was aparently having some emotional problems."
The note also said "this is not a robbery,this is a request," according to Garcia.
Authorities are now reportedly searching the area of Paul M. Pearson Gardens for the suspect, said to have fled on foot. The suspect is described as a black male, 5’8" tall, about 170 pounds with dreadlocks.
