A man was arrested by Florence police Monday after they say he put on a disguise and tried to rob a bank.

On Monday, the Florence Police Department received several reports of an individual attempting to enter local banks wearing a disguise, said Sgt. Robbie Howard.

About 12:25 p.m., police responded to a hold-up alarm at Listerhill Credit Union, 301 W. College St.

Police said they found Keenan Randle, 21, wearing a disguise that matched earlier descriptions. Police said he also had a note that demanded money.

He’s been charged with first-degree robbery.
