Man robbing Sevier County Bank in Pigeon Forge

The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Chief Jack Baldwin of the Pigeon Forge Police Department are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the man who robbed a Pigeon Forge bank today.

At approximately 9:11 this morning, a man armed with a weapon entered the Sevier County Bank located at 3605 S. Parkway, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Witnesses described the suspect as a white male, in his late 20s or early 30s, between 5'10" and 6' tall, with a slender build, weighing approximately 160 to 180 pounds. The suspect was wearing blue jeans, a black hoodie with a white design on the back, and a camouflage mask. After making a verbal demand for money and brandishing a black, large-frame, semi-automatic pistol, the suspect obtained an undetermined amount of money. He left the scene on foot heading north toward River Road.

A reward is being offered for information which leads to the arrest of this individual. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 865-544-0751 or the Pigeon Forge Police Department at 865-453-9063.

This matter is being investigated by the FBI with the assistance of the Pigeon Forge Police Department.
