FBI seeks help finding bay area bank robber

TAMPA — The FBI needs the public's help identifying a middle-aged man agents call the "Bank Bag Bandit," responsible for three bank robberies.

He's robbed the BB & T Bank at 6213 State Road 54 in Elfers on Nov. 2, the First Citrus Bank at 13850 Sheldon Road in Tampa on Dec. 8 and the Superior Bank at 1300 Pinehurst Drive in Spring Hill on Jan. 28.

The man described as white with a heavy build, 5-foot-8 to 6-foot tall and with gray hair walked into each bank, pointed a pistol, demanded money and gave the tellers a pouch to place the money inside.

He wore dark sunglasses and a hat along with a mask to cover his face, and was seen leaving in a silver or gray Ford F-150 from one robbery.

Anyone with information about these robberies can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
