A man shown in a surveillance footage from a Little Rock bank has been identified, authorities said.
Police did not immediately identify the man, who was not charged "pending further investigation," a police spokesman said in a statement.
Authorities on Tuesday morning released a still image from the bank surveillance and said that the footage showed the man take an envelope holding $5,000 cash that had been left on a counter. The man later contacted authorities, police said.
Eric Barnes, a spokesman for the police department, said the man is still a suspect in the theft.
Little Rock police say officers are searching for a man who took $5,000 that had been left on a counter inside a bank.
On Nov. 21, a woman went to the Bank of America at 8200 Geyer Springs Road with $5,000 in an envelope, according to a Little Rock Police Department report. She filled out a deposit slip, and when she took it to the teller, she left the money on a table.
By the time she went back to retrieve the envelope, the cash was gone, the report said.
Police said investigators are working to identify and locate a man seen on surveillance footage taking the envelope.
