Investigators say 21-year old Jabrell Harvey walked up to the teller just after 1:30 p.m. Monday and passed a note to the teller demanding money. The teller complied with the demand and handed over an undisclosed amount of money to Harvey before activating a silent alarm.
Harvey then allegedly ran out the door and down the street, away from the bank.
