Bank robber to teller: 'Give me the money now'

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man is on the run after robbing a bank Monday afternoon.

A man walked into First Tennessee Bank, at 1249 E. Shelby Drive, on Monday around 2:30 p.m. and handed a teller a note. The man then took a bag filled with money and left the bank.

Police said after the man handed the note to the teller, he told her "give me the money now."

The teller complied and handed over the money. Unbeknownst to the robber, the teller packed the money bag with red dye packs.

A short time later, a witness called police from the Exxon Station on Elvis Presley Boulevard and said he saw a man covered in red ink.

Police believe the man was in a gray Chevrolet Sonic.
