Camden, SC (WLTX) - Camden police are looking for a man they say tried to rob a bank and claimed to have a bomb.

At about 4:30 p.m. pm on January 16th, a man walked into the Bank of America in Camden and asked to speak to a service person, according to Chief Joseph Floyd.

He was taken to an office where he told the service person that he had a bomb strapped to himself and he had a detonator, and he wanted $9500.

He walked with the bank service person to the teller window, where he asked again for the money.  The teller, not realizing that this was a robbery, asked for the man's identification. The robber turned and left the bank, according to authorities.  

If you have any information about this attempted robbery you are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-CrimeSC.
