AUGUSTA, Ga.---The Georgia Bank and Trust at Washington Road and Fury's Ferry Road was robbed a little before 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Deputies say a man wearing a mask entered the bank with a gun and demanded money from a teller.

The man was last seen headed down Fury's Ferry towards River Watch Parkway in a four-door, silver Buick with a white paper tag with red lettering, such as those used by car dealers.

The suspect is described as a white male, 6' 4" with a skinny build, unshaven with sideburns. He was last seen wearing a dark ski mask with uneven eye holes, dark sunglasses, a dark long sleeved button-up shirt, blue jeans, and tennis shoes with dark colored soles. He was carrying a black semi-automatic handgun of unknown type.
