Police seek cross-eyed bank robber

By Ed Brock

Morrow police say a cross-eyed man and a woman robbed a bank there Monday afternoon.

The man and woman entered the Bank of America on Mt. Zion Road near Southlake Mall around 12:44 p.m., Morrow Police Chief Charlie Sewell said. They got into separate lines and the man gave the teller a note demanding money.

"Upon receiving the money he tapped the female on the shoulder and they both exited the bank," Sewell said.

Sewell said the two left with an undisclosed amount of money.

A witness followed the couple and saw them get into a burgundy early 1990s model Oldsmobile or Plymouth. They were last seen driving north on Ga. Highway 54 over Interstate 75, but Sewell said he did not have the license plate number of the car.

Also, a discharged red dye pack was found in the parking lot near the bank, but Sewell said he doesn't know if the dye pack went off near the suspects.

The man was black in his mid-20s with acne scars, a mustache and, according to Sewell, he was cross-eyed. He was wearing a dark shirt, a black Raiders ball cap and large, silver-rimmed tinted glasses.

Sewell had no further description of the woman.

Nobody was injured and no weapon was shown.

Anyone with information on the suspects can call Morrow police at (770) 960-3001.
