WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A fast getaway leaves Wilmington Police searching for a bank robber. It happened around 11 a.m. at the Wachovia at 4195 Market Street.

Police arrived within a minute of the call, but there was no sign of the thief.

The robber is described as 6’3″ wearing a black shirt, dark pants and something pulled up over his face.

    When the Pit Stop off Carolina Beach Road was robbed they gave a better description of the car than of the robber. Guess they don’t want to hurt any feelings.

    Care to share if he was white, black, or whatever???? Have we become so politically correct that we would rather take a chance on letting a bank robber go free than mention his race?
