The Wells Fargo Bank on Blanding Boulevard at Harlow Boulevard was robbed about 12:15 p.m. Monday by someone who gave the teller a note saying he had a weapon, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Robbery division Sgt. J. Short said the man entered the bank about noon. The robber grabbed the back of his waistband as if he were reaching for a gun, but never pulled it. As he left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash, the teller saw a holstered black handgun on his belt.

The robber was described as a white man in his early 30s with brown hair and a beard. He was about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed about 200 pounds. He was wearing a dark green ball cap and khaki shorts. No vehicle was seen.

JSO said it would release surveillance photos when they became available.

While police investigated, the lobby remained closed, but the drive-thru window reopened.
