Man robs bank at Village Lakes

The Bank of America at 21725 Village Lakes Shopping Center Drive was robbed shortly after 10 a.m. on Thursday by a man who gave the teller a note saying he had a weapon. He escaped with an undisclosed amount of money, fleeing east on State Road 54 in a green Jeep Liberty. He is white, 30-40 years old, about 6 feet tall with a heavy build. He has brown hair and a mustache, and was wearing a blue cap, blue shirt and tan pants. Anyone with information was asked to call the Pasco County Sheriff's Office toll-free at 1-800-854-2862.

Correction

Julie May is the stepmother of Brittany May. A Dec. 3 story in Top of the Class about Operation Shoebox incorrectly stated their relationship.
