    ORIGINAL STORY:

    Police are searching for a man who robbed the CommunityOne Bank at 102 Millstone Drive in Hillsborough.

    A man entered the bank shortly before 11 a.m. Monday morning covered with a mask, hood and gloves, and yelled a demand for money.

    After bank employees complied, the man fled.

    The robber did not display a weapon, but it is unclear as to whether he is armed.


    As the man ran out of the bank, he dropped some of the getaway money. Those funds were recovered by law officers.

    Officers from the Hillsborough Police Department and Orange County Sheriff's Office responded to the call.

    A vehicle that may be connected to the case has been identified by investigators. Investigators have contacted the FBI. More information and surveillance photos will be released as they become available.

    No one was injured.
