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.

  1. Trigaux: For Class of 2016, college debt loads favor Florida graduates

    Florida college graduates saddled with student debt: Take heart. The average debt Class of 2016 Florida grads must bear is less than students in most states.

    University of South Florida undergraduates gather at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa for last fall's commencement ceremony. A new survey finds their average student debt upon graduating was $22,276. Statewide, 2016 Florida grads ranked a relatively unencumbered 45th among states, averaging $24,461 in student debt. [Photo Luis Santana | Times]

    Imagine this:

    Your mail-in ballot for the St. Petersburg mayoral election has just arrived. According to the fine print, if you live on the west side of the city, your ballot will count as one vote. Meanwhile, a ballot in St. Pete's northeast section counts for three votes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The Sunshine City's new property tax rate looks exactly like its current rate. For the second year in a row, Mayor Rick Kriseman does not plan to ask City Council for a tax hike or a tax cut.
