Murfreesboro Police Investigating Bank Robbery at Fifth Third Bank


MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (January 7, 2022) – Murfreesboro Police and the FBI are searching for a man who robbed a bank on the city’s westside on Friday, Jan. 7. The bank robber may be the same man who robbed a different bank in the same area 25 days earlier, according to a police sergeant.

The man robbed the Fifth Third Bank, 2437 Old Fort Pkwy., around 11:17 a.m. Friday. He did not display a gun but handed a teller a note demanding money. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Bank surveillance photos show a man dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black shoes, gray gloves, a tan hat, and a surgical mask.

The bank robber parked his getaway car, a dark-color Honda Accord (2015 – 2019 model), at a nearby Waffle House. He was seen getting into the car and driving toward Interstate 24.

The robber fits the description of the man who robbed the First Horizon Bank, 154 Cason Lane, on Dec. 13, 2021. In that robbery he used the same getaway car.

Anyone with information about the bank robber should call MPD Criminal Investigations Division Detective Julie Cox at 629 201 5514.
