      Authorities searching for suspect in armed-robbery at St. Clair County bank

      The Peoples Independent Bank in Steele was robbed Friday evening. The FBI says the suspect pointed a pistol at the tellers before filling a trash bag from the bank with cash from the drawers.

      The suspect fled the bank on foot and crossed a railroad into a nearby neighborhood, that's where tracking dogs lost his trail. Police believe he departed the area in a vehicle.

      The suspect is a black man and approximately 6'5". He wore jeans, a tan coat, tan boots, and full-face toboggan and gloves.

      If you have info, call Birmingham's FBI field office at 326-6166.
