SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Bond was set at $50,000 for a man who police say threatened to detonate a bomb during a robbery at a BB&T Bank branch in Summerville Tuesday morning.

The incident happened just after 9:30 a.m. at the branch located at North Main Street, according to the Summerville Police Department.

The suspect, 45-year-old David Presnell, was apprehended by officers after a brief foot chase. 

Police said that Presnell walked into the bank disguised in all black and told the teller he had a bomb. Authorities also said that no customers were inside the bank at the time of the robbery.

No injuries were reported.

Presnell is charged with entering a financial institution with intent to steal and threatening the use of a hoax device or replica of destruction. He is scheduled to appear in bond court within the next 24 hours.
