GUILDERLAND — A bank robber got away with “an undetermined amount of money” from the First National Bank of Scotia on Tuesday, according to a press release from the Guilderland Police. 

The bank is located 8 New Karner Road, near the corner of Western Avenue.

Just before 5 p.m., the robber passed a note to a teller demanding money and said he had a gun, although no gun was displayed, the release said. 

The robber was described as a white male wearing a black coat, black winter hat, black neck gaiter, blue jeans, and brown work boots. 

He was seen leaving the bank on foot, heading south on New Karner Road. The Albany County Sheriff’s Office assisted with a trained police dog, to try to track the suspect. 

On Wednesday, spokesman and deputy chief of the Guilderland Police, Curtis Cox, said he had no new information. 

Police are asking anyone who has information regarding the robbery to call 518-356-1501.
