Hernando County Sheriff's Office seeks mystery man and bag of money


This man, and A bag of cash, sought by deputies

Hernando sheriff's deputies were still searching Thursday for the man who picked up a bank bag containing thousands of dollars Monday from the parking lot of a Circle K convenience store on Broad Street. Investigators released a video showing the man walking briskly from the store to his truck, stopping only momentarily to bend down and scoop up the bank bag. Sgt. Donna Black of the Sheriff's Office said the man should have notified authorities as soon as he found the bag. If the man doesn't return the bag, he could face charges of grand theft. The bag belongs to George Sudyam, 46, of Spring Hill, who accidentally dropped the bank bag when he got out of his car. He said the money was to be used to pay taxes on property he owns. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Stentz at (352) 754-6830.
