Washington County sheriff's deputies are investigating after a man robbed a bank in Cornelius on Tuesday evening.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesman Deputy Jeff Talbot, a man entered the U.S. Bank, 1735 N. Adair St., at about 6:02 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8. The man reportedly passed a note to a bank teller which demanded money.
