(MURFREESBORO) WGNS is continuing to follow details of a bank robbery that Murfreesboro Police and the FBI are investigating.
The robbery occurred just before 1:30 on Monday (12/13/2021) afternoon at First Horizon Bank, formerly First Tennessee Bank, in front of the Cason Lane Kroger Store.
Evidently, the unknown man walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. The bank employee complied.
Authorities say the First Horizon Bank robber parked his getaway car across the street, where he ran and then drove away. His car appeared to be a gray or silver 4-door sedan, possibly a newer model Honda Accord.
WGNS spoke to Murfreesboro Police Public Information Officer Larry Flowers on Wednesday (12/15/2021) afternoon and he confirmed no arrests have been made and the robber is still on the run.
