PHOENIX -- FBI investigators are looking into the robbery of a Phoenix bank Friday morning.

It happened about 9:30 a.m. at the Bank of America at 51st Street and Elliot Road near the Ahwatukee Plaza.

The FBI has linked this case to the string of the "Wilson Bandit" robberies.

According to investigators, a man walked in and gave the teller a demand note which also stated he had a gun.

The teller gave the man money, but there was a die pack inside. The man then took off on foot.

That die pack and some of the stolen cash were located a short time later at a nearby McDonald's. The robber, however, was nowhere to be found.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic male in his early 20s. He was wearing a grey knit hat, a red sweatshirt and light-colored baggy pants.

Phoenix officers and Maricopa County sheriff's deputies were both called out to the scene. They conducted a brief search using dogs and an air unit.

That search has since been called off and the suspect remains on the loose.

The case has been turned over to the FBI.
