Police say 27-year-old Jason Scott Radcliff entered the bank on September 1st displaying a handgun. Radcliff demanded money from one of the tellers and ran off into the nearby woods with an undisclosed amount of money. Radcliff was found hiding in an abandoned building, but conflicting information allowed him to walk free.
