Authorities say a man robbed a bank in South Carolina after the $173 check he tried to cash bounced.

Police say the man gave a teller the personal check on Monday morning, but the teller couldn't cash it because there wasn't enough money in the account.

Authorities say the man told the teller he had to have the cash or someone was going to kill him. He wrote a note saying he was robbing the bank.

Police say the teller gave the man some money and he ran away.

Investigators say they have a suspect, but have not made an arrest.
