Police have charged a man with the armed robbery of a bank in Tweed Heads South last year.

About 10am on Tuesday 20 December 2011, a man allegedly entered the bank on Minjungbal Drive, carrying what appeared to be a double-barrel shotgun covered in a pillowslip.

Police will allege the man demanded cash from bank staff, before fleeing on foot with a sum of money.
