Posted: Updated:

WAILUKI, Hawaii (AP) - Maui County police are looking for a man who robbed a bank in Lahaina.

The Maui News reports the man at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday walked into Territorial Savings Bank, stepped to a teller's counter and walked off without speaking.

Lt. William Juan says the man returned 20 minutes later and placed a note on the teller's counter. The teller opened a drawer and put money on the counter. The man took the note and the money, walked out of the bank and moved north toward Papalaua Street.

A patrol officer searched but could not find the man.

Witnesses describe him as 5-feet-8-inches tall, 150 pound and 20 to 25 years old.

He was clean-shaven. He wore a blue hat, black shirt, black or purple shorts and sunglasses.
