HENRY Co., Va. (WSET) -- The Henry County Sheriff's Office said they are hoping the public can identify a suspect in a bank robbery.

The sheriff's office said a suspect robbed the Valley Star Credit Union on Wheeler Avenue in Collinsville around 4 p.m. Wednesday, June 6.

They said he gave a note to the teller that demanded money before putting his hand in his pocket on an object they believed to be a firearm, but they said no one saw a gun.

Through the course of the investigation, investigators said they determined that before he robbed the bank he went into the Fidelity Bank on Virginia Avenue and employees noticed him acting suspiciously.

Investigators said he was captured on video surveillance inside the Fidelity Bank.

He's described as being in his mid-30's to 40's, with dark hair, around 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4, weighing about 225-250 pounds.

Investigators said he was wearing a dark blue hat with a star on it, with sunglasses and a gray t-shirt.

They said he fled, in what appears to be a gold Nissan Murano, with cash from the bank.

Anyone having information regarding this robbery or the identity of the individual in the attached photos is asked to contact the Henry County Sheriff’s Office at (276) 638-8751 or the Crimestoppers Program at 63-CRIME (632-7463).
