The First Citizens Bank in Dillon was robbed on Friday afternoon, according to Dillon Police Chief David Lane.
According to the incident report, the robbery occurred shortly after 4:30 p.m. Sgt. Joshua Kasson and Captain Ryan Berry were responding officers.

Officers were told that the suspect had a note, but did not give it to the teller and crumpled it up.
The teller could not see what the note said. The teller stated that the suspect “asked her if this was the Dillon location.” He asked her to “give him all of the money but no dye packs.”

Someone saw him get into a small white vehicle with paper tags, the report states. The suspect was seen putting something in the trash at the State Farm building.
