The search is on for a man who robbed the Capital Bank in Fort Myers late Thursday afternoon.

It happened at 12205 Metro Parkway just after 3:30 p.m.  Investigators say the man walked into the bank and approached a teller, demanding cash.  He did not show a weapon, but implied he had a gun.

He left the bank less than two minutes later, heading in an unknown direction.  He is described as a white male, wearing a grey cap with the word "State" embroidered on it and a black jacket covering a shirt that also had the wording "State." 

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the man is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
