FBI: Ohio bank suspect lowers hood when told

(CBS/AP) COLUMBUS, Ohio - The FBI says an Ohio bank robber left authorities with good surveillance photos, because he lowered his hood when an employee told him to.

FBI Special Agent Harry Trombitas says the bank has a "no hats, no hoods" policy, so a bank employee told the man to pull his hood down... and he complied.

The suspect in his mid-20s entered a Columbus PNC Bank on Wednesday with his dark hood up, covering most of his face.

The FBI says when the suspect got to the counter, he handed the teller a note saying he had a gun and to give him money or he would shoot.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police haven't announced an arrest, but they're pretty sure they know who they're looking for.
