VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Police in Virginia Beach are looking for a man who robbed a bank and left a suspicious object behind.

Police spokesperson Tonya Pierce says the robbery was reported just after 10 a.m. a Fulton Bank branch off Dam Neck Road.

It was reported that a man entered the bank, pulled a gun and left with cash. Before leaving the bank, however, the suspect left an object behind.

Pierce says this suspicious package was found at the scene, prompting an evacuation of the bank.

A bomb squad responded to the bank and the object was not a threat.

Photos were released Wednesday morning, showing the suspect in a mask, wearing a black dress shirt, a tie and jeans.

Police said he was last seen running from the bank southbound toward Princess Anne Road.
