ANDERSON COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – The Anderson Co. Sheriff’s Office says they have arrested the suspect in a bank robbery that happened Tuesday afternoon.

According to deputies, the man never presented a weapon.

They say they arrested Terrence Edward Mackey, 29, of Pickens St. in Anderson.

An employee tells investigators the suspect came in with a t-shirt wrapped around his head.

She told him multiple times to take it of and he went outside.

He came back in the bank with the shirt over his shoulder and went to a desk in the lobby to fill out a deposit slip, according to the employee.

He came to the front desk and gave the employee the slip and a piece of notebook paper that said that it was a robbery.

The employee said the suspect told her if she called the police or hit the panic button that she would regret it and he would harm her.

She gave him the money and he left.

The warrant says it was $2,150.

Mackey is charged with Grand Larceny more than $2,000, but less than $10,000 and Entering bank with intent to steal.
