MARTINEZ, Ga. (WRDW) -- The Columbia County Sheriff's Office is looking for the suspect in a strong-arm robbery that happened in the parking lot of a bank in Martinez on Friday afternoon.

The victim said she was in line at the Wells Fargo on Washington Road when the man standing behind her starting talking to her. She says he stood behind her as she received $1,800 in cash from the teller.

According to the incident report, the man followed the victim to her car, and as she tried to get inside her car, the victim says he told her to hand over the money. She says that's when he snatched the cash out of her hand before driving off in a beige sedan.
