Pasco County deputies need help identifying bank robber


Deputies seek public's help to identify robber

Deputies are searching for the man who robbed a SunTrust Bank about 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The man walked into the bank at 7612 State Road 52, demanded money and left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Surveillance cameras show that earlier that morning, the same man walked into a Regions Bank at SR 52 and Zimmerman Road, but did not rob it. Deputies believe he may have been casing the bank before deciding to go to the SunTrust a few blocks away. Detectives hope someone will recognize the man from surveillance camera images. Anyone with a tip about the robber is asked to call Detective Brad Seltman at the Pasco Sheriff's Office toll-free at 1-800-854-2862, ext. 7462, or call the Pasco Sheriff's Office Crime Tips Line toll-free at 1-800-706-2488.


Ex-football star back behind bars

Former Pasco High School and NFL player Darren Hambrick is back in jail after admitting he violated his probation by visiting the home of a woman he had been ordered to stay away from. Hambrick, 34, was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in the Pasco County jail, though only a portion of that sentence remains because he spent some time in jail after his May 25 arrest. Hambrick, who led Pasco High to its only state championship in 1992, was arrested most recently after a woman he'd been accused of beating came home to find him in her house, sitting in the dark, drinking a beer and smoking a cigar.


Cartoon author killed by gunshots

Arrest documents released Thursday revealed that gunshot wounds killed Stephen Perry, the former writer of the 1980s cartoon series Thundercats. Perry's roommate, James William Davis, 45, was arrested this week on a charge of first-degree murder. Authorities say Davis shot Perry, 56, sometime around May 10. The motive remains unclear. Perry's body was dismembered and parts were disposed of in different locations. Court documents filed this week say Davis purchased two bottles of bleach that were used to clean up Perry's Eighth Avenue home after the murder. He remains at the Land O'Lakes jail without bail.
