Help sought in identifying Seminole bank robbery suspect

SEMINOLE — Pinellas County sheriff's deputies are asking the public to help identify a man caught on surveillance video robbing a bank last week.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, the man walked into the BB&T Bank at 7995 113th St. N about 4 p.m. on Sept. 21, approached a teller, implied he had a gun and demanded cash.

The teller gave the man an undisclosed amount of money and he ran away.

The man is described as white, approximately 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He wore his hair in a ponytail and was last seen wearing a dark colored polo-style shirt with a design on the upper left chest area, dark pants, white shoes and sunglasses.

The man had a green item protruding from his back waist area, possibly a hat or "waist pack," the Sheriff's Office said.

Bank security cameras captured photos of the man as he came into the bank and as he fled.

"Looking at the pictures, someone is going to know this guy. The pictures are pretty clear," said Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Tom Nestor.

The agency asks that anyone with information about the man to call Detective Jeff Capra at (727) 582-6200. To remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
