Deputies search for robber who hit Pasco bank twice

PORT RICHEY — Pasco County sheriff's deputies are searching for a man who has robbed the same Regions Bank twice within the past two weeks.

The branch at 6424 Embassy Blvd. was robbed Dec. 9 and again Monday afternoon, both times by a man handing the teller a note claiming he had a weapon. On both occasions, he left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a white man about 60 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds and wearing a tan jacket and sunglasses. He had a moustache and gray hair. Witnesses said the robber fled in a gray or silver Ford Taurus.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Pasco County Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711.
