BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A man suspected of robbing an America's First Credit Union on Wednesday turned himself in after his mom saw his picture on TV.

The robbery happened on Crow Drive in northeast Birmingham.

Police said a black male in his 20s entered the bank around 2:21 p.m. He was armed with a handgun and presented a note to a teller, demanding money. He pulled out a black, cloth bag from under a reflective vest he was wearing and held it so no one else could see what was happening.

After the teller gave him the money, the suspect fled to the back of the bank to a church parking lot and got into a silver, early-2000 model Cadillac with two other black males.

The suspects drove toward Five Mile Road on Roebuck Drive.

Police are still looking for the two other black males.

Anyone who has more information about this case is asked to call Detective Brooks at 205-254-1753 or leave an anonymous tip by calling 205-254-7777.
