COPPERAS COVE — Police are searching for a man who brandished a weapon and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash from Fort Hood National Bank Thursday morning.

The suspect entered the bank in the 200 block of Constitution Drive about 10 a.m. and gave a note to a teller. He showed her a handgun and demanded money.

After receiving the cash, he fled in a silver or white four-door sedan, said Sgt. Kevin Keller, a spokesperson for the Copperas Cove Police Department.

No one was injured during the robbery, Keller said.

Police described the man as an unshaven black male. During the robbery, he wore a dark baseball cap, brown or burnt orange

T-shirt and blue jeans, according to a news release.

Investigators released surveillance photos of the man inside the bank and outside in the getaway car, hoping someone can help identify him.
