SALISBURY —The Salisbury Police Department is investigating a robbery at an F&M Bank branch on Jake Alexander Boulevard.

The bank robbery occurred at 9:22 a.m. Thursday when a 60-year-old man entered F&M Bank and approached a counter staffed by two tellers, one of whom was in training, a city of Salisbury news release said. The man passed a note to the tellers and didn’t display a gun.

The tellers gave the man an undisclosed amount of money. He left in a silver Honda CRV from the bank at 630 Jake Alexander Blvd.

Detectives are actively investigating the incident. Anyone with information, can contact Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.

Salisbury Police officers responded to the robbery at roughly the same time they responded to a shooting nearby on Sunset Drive. There’s no evidence the two are connected. A Post reporter on the scene saw several police cars parked near the bank and three officers across the street. One brandished a rifle. Another officer had a K-9 with him.
