Bank robber sought
Columbia County deputies are looking for a man who robbed a Martinez bank Wednesday.
Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris said a man walked into the Regions Bank at 4129 Columbia Road in Martinez, just before 1 p.m. Wednesday and demanded money. Bank employees gave the man an undisclosed amount of money and he left the bank in a black or dark gray late 1980s or early 1990s model Nissan pickup with rear-end body damage, Morris said.
The man did not brandish a weapon or a note. No one was injured in the robbery, Morris said.
The man is described as a white man in his 50s or 60s with salt-and-pepper hair. He was wearing a gray shirt, khaki pants and a red baseball cap, Morris said.
The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
