Tuesday's robbery happened at the Wells Fargo branch at 6155 Jimmy Carter Blvd., around 9:18 a.m.
Employees told police a well dressed black man waited in line for a teller, presented a note demanding money and displayed what looked like a hand grenade. Police said the man left on foot.
Police and the FBI believe the same man robbed Wells Fargo branches in Doraville and Buckhead.
The suspect is described as a well dressed black man, with dark skin, about 6’05” with a thin build.

Wells Fargo is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
