CLINTON - Police are on the lookout for a man who robbed a credit union here Thursday evening.

The robbery happened at the Mountain America Credit Union at 1727 W. and 1800 North at about 4 p.m., Clinton Police Sgt. Todd Kelly said.

The suspect walked into the credit union and waited for a moment as the teller finished a phone call. He approached the teller and handed her a note, indicating that he was robbing the bank. No weapons were displayed, however it is unknown if the man was armed at the time.

The teller complied and gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash. It was reported that he left on foot eastbound on 1800 North. It is unknown if he had a getaway vehicle ready.

After responding to the call, police searched the surrounding area for the man in case he was only on foot, Kelly said.
