Clearwater police investigating bank robbery

CLEARWATER — Police are asking the public to help identify a man who robbed a Regions Bank Wednesday morning.

The man walked into the bank at 1500 Belleair Road around 9:20 a.m., approached a teller and reached into his clothing to suggest he had a weapon, police said. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the man ran away.

The suspect was described as black, about 30 years old, 6 feet to 6 feet 2, with a slender build and long dreadlocks. He was wearing a long-sleeve black shirt, black hat and khaki one-piece coveralls, like those worn by mechanics or painters.

Clearwater police ask anyone with information about the suspect or the robbery to call their robbery tip line at (727) 562-4422. Or, to remain anonymous, text CWPD and the tip information to 847411 or submit information through the department web site at www.clearwaterpolice.org.
