Police are hoping someone can help identify the man and the woman he was with in this July 18, 2017 photo.
Investigators are asking the public to call the Salina Police Department at 785-826-7210 or Crime Stoppers at 825 Tips with any information.
The two drove away in a white or silver GMC Acadia.
Salina Police are investigating a theft of $2,200 from Central National Bank at 2900 S. 9th inside of Wal-Mart.
The incident occurred on Tuesday, July 18 between 3:20 P.M. and 4 P.M. Capt. Paul Forrester says that a male subject asked to trade out $4,800 worth of $20 bills in to $100 bills.
Once the cash had been broken down to $100 bills, the subject then asked the teller if he could have the cash converted in to Canadian bills.
When the teller explained how that was not possible, the subject then asked to have money then converted back to $20 bills.
When the subject received the money back in $20s, he pocketed $2,200 of the $100 bills and left. Immediately after his departure, the teller realized that the money was missing and notified authorities.
Police say the man left in a white or silver GMC Acadia with a female passenger.
The Salina Police are working with the bank to retrieve an image of the suspect from security cameras.
