Hillsborough deputies seek three men in bank robbery

TAMPA — Sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's help in identifying three men who pulled off a brazen bank heist Monday morning in Tampa.

The robbery happened at about 9:50 a.m. at the PNC Bank at 12951 N Dale Mabry Highway, Hillsborough sheriff's officials said. The three men, all armed with handguns, walked into the bank wearing black clothing over their faces.

Two of the men hopped over the front counter and collected cash while a third man held customers at gunpoint in the lobby, deputies said. All three fled in a silver Dodge Intrepid, which was later found abandoned in the rear of Countrywood Apartments at 12101 N Dale Mabry Highway.

All three men were described as between 18 and 25 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with thin builds. In addition to the black clothing over their faces, they all wore long-sleeved white T-shirts, gloves and dark pants.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200. Tips can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
