Lexington Police are searching for a man they say robbed a bank Friday afternoon.
It happened at the PNC Bank on New Circle Road near Russell Cave just before 3:00 p.m. Friday.
Detectives say the man walked in and showed a note in which he told the teller he had a firearm. The man got some cash and fled the scene.
Police said no firearm was ever produced and no one was hurt.
While the investigation was underway at the bank, officers pulled over a man driving on the Richmond Road exit ramp off New Circle who they say matched the description of the suspect who had just robbed the bank.
Police say it was an investigative stop, and after talking to him they decided he wasn't the suspect.
Police are still searching for the robber described as a white man, approximately 5'8", possibly in his 30s with red facial hair.
