Sgt. Brian Brosnan of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office watches as a police dog searches for evidence near a Bank of America branch in Hudson that was robbed Wednesday morning. The thief took an undisclosed amount of money. 

HUDSON — Deputies are searching for a man who robbed a branch of Bank of America.

The man walked into the bank at 12935 U.S. 19 on Wednesday morning, "displayed a note demanding money and left with an undisclosed amount," the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies described the suspect as a white man between 45 and 50 years old with an unshaven face. He was wearing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers cap, a gray T-shirt and dirty jeans.

The man didn't appear to be armed, but sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said, "Anybody who robs a bank should be considered dangerous."

The bank, between an auto repair shop and a crematory on the west side of U.S. 19, was ringed with crime-scene tape late Wednesday morning. Detectives and deputies stood in the parking lot, and police dogs scanned the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711.
