TAMPA — Deputies seek help in identifying a man who robbed a New Tampa bank at gunpoint earlier this month.

About 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 5, a man dressed in black clothes, a black ski mask and white gloves entered the GTE Federal Credit Union, 20761 Center Oak Drive, with a Glock semiautomatic handgun and a black leather briefcase.

Hillsborough County deputies said he took an undisclosed amount of cash from the bank vault and teller drawers, put the money in his bag and left on foot.

The robber is described as white, 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. Deputies said he also carried a black umbrella.

Detectives hope someone recognizes the unique briefcase, which could help identify the robber.

Deputies ask that anyone with information call Detective Phil Raschiatore at (813) 247-8668 or Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay at 1-800-873-8477.
