BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Biloxi police are searching for a man who tried to rob the Whitney Bank on Pass Road. It's not clear if the man got away with any money.

According to the police scanner we've been monitoring, the robber is described as a heavyset white man with extremely fair skin and hair. Witnesses told police he had almost "albino-like" features.

The robbery happened around 10:45 a.m. Monday. The man presented a note saying he had a gun, but never actually showed a weapon. He walked out of the bank with a blue bank bag, but it's not clear if any money was actually in the bag.

WLOX News has a crew at the scene and will have more on this breaking story later today.
