The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department is investigating a robbery which occurred Tuesday afternoon at Liberty State Bank in Liberty.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says a man, believed to be in his mid-twenties, walked into the bank and handed one of the employees a note demanding cash. The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money and the man fled on foot in an unknown direction of travel.

According to Sheriff Ray, the man was described as a white male, wearing an orange plaid shirt and blue jeans. He was also wearing a camoflagued hat with sunglasses on the cap. The man had no covering over his face. He is approximately five feet, five inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds

The man did not display any weapon during the robbery and no one was injured. After he left, a bank employee called 911 at 1:18 p.m. Within a minute of the call, an officer of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, who was on Highway 70 in Liberty, arrived at the bank.

Officers and detectives of the Sheriff's Department rushed to the scene. Sheriff Ray says he also contacted the FBI and two agents came over. Constable Mark Milam arrived as well.

No arrests had been made at last report.

If you have information that could help solve the crime, contact the Sheriff's Department at 597-4935.
