Deputies seek help identifying bank robber

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office has released this photo of a man who robbed the Anderen Bank in Eastlake Woodlands Plaza on Tuesday afternoon in hopes someone will identify him. The robber is 35 to 40 years old with a medium to tan complexion and medium build. He has a noticeable belly and bad teeth. He was wearing a denim blue shirt, gray athletic shorts and a ball cap with the words Clearwater, Florida, on it. The robbery occurred just before 4 p.m., deputies said. After brandishing a weapon, the man ran away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Jeremy Lewis at (727) 582-6200 or Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800 873-TIPS (8477).

Parking garage topic to continue

Tonight the City Council will continue discussing a public parking garage to be built on south Clearwater Beach. Members are considering a few different locations. One potential site is along Beach Walk just south of the Hyatt Aqualea condo-hotel, while another is a couple of blocks from the beach on Fifth Street between Hamden and Coronado drives. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in council chambers at City Hall, 112 S Osceola Ave.


Benefit a success, organizer says

A benefit to raise money for art and music scholarships in the name of an art teacher killed last year in a crash was a success, the organizer says. "It was very uplifting," said Rosemary Nolletti, whose daughter, Jennifer Nolletti, 26, died in October. Rosemary Nolletti said it will be a week or so before final figures are in from the silent auction and expenses for the event, which included a concert and a day of children's art activities Sunday at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Jennifer Nolletti was an art teacher at South Ward, Belcher and Ponce de Leon elementary schools.
