A Liberty County bank robber used the weapon of distraction to pull off his crime.

He made a 9-1-1 call on Tuesday afternoon, threading to set off a bomb the Dayton High School campus. Not long after that, while officers were investigating the threat, the Security State Bank one and a half miles up the road was robbed.

No one was hurt and nothing was found at the school. The robber is still on the run.
