Arlington police are searching for a man covered with red dye.

The man got more than he asked for when he robbed a Regions Bank in the 3900 block of Matlock Road Saturday morning.

Tiara Richard, police spokeswoman, said the man walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. The teller complied and put the money inside a bag.

As the man was getting into his vehicle, a white Honda Odyssey, the dye pack inside the money detonated and sprayed red dye on him, Richard said.

Arlington police are asking anyone with information about the man, believed to be of Asian descent with red dye on his hands or face, to call 911.
