bank holdup

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who robbed a Palm Harbor bank Tuesday morning. According to sheriff's officials, the man entered the Patriot Bank at 1103 Florida Ave. after 11 a.m. and demanded cash from a teller. He lifted a coat he was carrying to reveal what appeared to be a shotgun and forced everyone to lie on the floor. He fled in a silver car, similar to a mid-to-late 1990s Ford Taurus. No one was hurt. Sheriff's officials described the suspect as a white man, 35 to 45 years old, wearing a blue long-sleeved button down shirt, dark dress pants and prescription glasses with large, thick lenses. Investigators ask anyone with information to call Detective Jeremy Lewis at (727) 582-6200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
