SPRING HILL — Using police dogs and a helicopter, the Hernando County Sheriff's Office was searching late Thursday for the man who robbed the Bank of America branch at 6023 Spring Hill Drive.
Authorities said the robber — described as a thin white man, about 6 feet tall, in his mid 20s, with long, wavy brown hair — walked into the bank about 4 p.m. wearing a mask made of black material and demanded money.
Although no one was injured in the holdup, sheriff's officials said the robber did display a small handgun.
After the holdup, the robber was seen running west from the bank, wearing a blue shirt, a blue hat and blue jeans; he was carrying a dark blue backpack.
