Police said Harry Lamont Leonard, 42, of Anniston, walked into the credit union branch on Noble Street at 1:15 p.m., and handed a note to a teller. Investigators said they don’t know what the note said, but it apparently demanded money, as the teller handed over an undetermined amount of cash.
After receiving the cash, Leonard allegedly fled on foot.
Police said Leonard displayed no weapons during the robbery. Several employees were in the store at the time, but police did not know if any customers were present.
Leonard also is wanted in connections with two other recent robberies, police said, including one at the Rite Aid pharmacy on U.S 431 Thanksgiving Day. The other took place in Oxford.
Police this afternoon are talking to witnesses and others in an attempt to find Leonard.
Court records show a Harry Lamont Leonard with the same birth date as having pleaded guilty to third degree robbery in 1989 and 2000, to burglary charges in 2001, 2004 and 2005. He also pleaded guilty to possession of controlled substances in 1989, and to receipt of stolen property in 1997, records show.
