Police responded Friday afternoon to a report of a bank robbery in downtown Biloxi near Howard Avenue and Reynoir Street.
Biloxi police Sgt. Jackie Rhodes said investigators and crime-scene analysts were at the Wells Fargo bank in the 800 block of Howard Avenue.
Lt. Chris De Back said the bank was robbed at 1:10 p.m. A man walked in and approached a teller. He produced a note demanding money, and the teller gave him an undisclosed amount of cash, De Back said.
The man walked out of the bank and headed south on Reynoir Street, where he got into a blue Dodge Dakota pickup with what appears to be plastic covering on the passenger window. The truck is believed to be a late ’90s or early 2000s model year. De Back said it was last seen heading east on Jackson Street.
Never miss a local story.
The man is described as tall, thin and white. He was wearing a tan jacket, black pants, black shoes and a black knit cap.
“We’re tracking down leads from here,” De Back said, “talking to people and reviewing surveillance video.”
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Biloxi police at 228-392-0641.
