LORENA, Texas (KWTX) Police in Lorena and the FBI are trying to track down a man who robbed a Lorena credit union office Tuesday afternoon and fled south on Interstate 35.

Lorena police Chief Tom Dickson said a man walked into the Lorena office of the Genco Federal Credit Union, at 230 North Interstate 35 Frontage Rd., in Lorena, and handed the teller a note that demanded cash.

Once the teller complied with the instructions, the man left the credit union lobby and fled south on the frontage road in a vehicle.

Dickson did not say if the man displayed a weapon or made threat of having one.

No one was injured.

The teller told police the man stood about 5-feet, 7-inches tall, wore a baseball cap that bore the monogram of Texas A&M University (ATM), and wore a black shirt.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect to call Lorena police at (254) 857-9614 or the FBI San Antonio office at (210) 225-6741.
