Gunman robs PNC Bank in Clearwater

CLEARWATER — Police are searching for a man who robbed a bank at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon.

The robber walked into the PNC Bank at 2575 Countryside Blvd. about 4 p.m., pointed a gun at employees and customers, and demanded cash from the teller, according to Clearwater police.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the man ran away into a nearby condominium complex. Police set up a perimeter and a K-9 tried to track the man, but couldn't find him.

Detectives believe Tuesday's suspect is the same man who robbed two other PNC Bank locations on May 26, one at 2498 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. and another in Largo.

Police describe the man as white, between 20 and 30 years of age. He was last seen wearing a green long-sleeve shirt and a black ball cap.

Anyone with information can call Clearwater police at (727) 562-4422.

    TAMPA — There was a time, not long ago, when Wayne Capaz would go for a stroll at night and Christina Rodriguez would shop whenever she wanted. Michael Fuller would go to his night job as a line cook, not too worried about his wife at home.
