Police in Blacksburg are looking for the pictured suspect after he robbed a bank in Blacksburg.

9-1-1 received a call at 3:42 p.m. from a teller at National Bank on South Main Street in Blacksburg that their bank had been robbed.

The police were able to get a picture of the suspect from video surveillance at the bank.
