Bank robbery

From the e-mail:

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information on the person who robbed the Wachovia Bank, 1200 Mitchell Br Rd, on April 24, shortly after 9:00 a.m.
A white male entered the bank and presented a small box along with a note demanding money. The note also stated there was a bomb in the box.
