SALINE COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities are investigating a suspect after an incident at a south Salina bank on Saturday.

Just after 3p.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to Central National Bank in Walmart, 2900 S. Ninth Street in Salina for the report of a man  making a threat about a shooting, according to Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester.
