Hillsborough deputies name Tampa bank robbery suspect

TAMPA — Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies have identified a man they say helped plan an October bank robbery in Tampa and they are asking for the public's help in finding him.

Adonis T. Boone, 23, is charged as an accomplice in the Oct. 23 robbery of a SunTrust branch at 6925 N 56th St., deputies said. That day, a woman wearing a wig walked into the bank and showed a note to a teller demanding money. After receiving cash, she fled.

Detectives worked for more than a week to identify the bandit referred to as the "wig-wearing suspect," starting their investigation without knowing whether the robber was a man or a woman. On Monday, they arrested 21-year-old Jessica Barbara Russell, who they said was the woman who committed the robbery. A subsequent investigation revealed that Boone helped coordinate the theft, deputies said.

Records show Boone has several prior arrests on charges that include battery, drug possession and resisting an officer. Authorities obtained an arrest warrant Friday charging him with armed bank robbery.

Boone is described as 5 feet 8, weighs about 130 pounds, with a thin build, black hair and brown eyes. He was last known to be living in an apartment at 5011 E Sligh Ave.

Anyone with information regarding Boone's whereabouts is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
