Largo Wachovia robbed at gunpoint, suspicious package left behind

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for two men who robbed a Largo Wachovia at gunpoint Thursday morning.

The men walked into the Wachovia at 801 W. Bay Drive just before 11 a.m., showed handguns and demanded money, said Largo Police Lt. Michael Loux. After they took an undisclosed amount, the two men placed a suspicious package in the lobby and indicated it was a bomb.

The Tampa Police Department bomb squad was investigating. The Pinellas County School Board offices, about a half- mile from the Wachovia, were placed on lockdown at about noon.

One suspect was described as a white male in his 20s with short dark blond hair, about 5-ft. 8-inches, 200 pounds and clean-shaven, wearing a light-colored jacket, a T-shirt with a design on it, jeans and large dark sunglasses. He was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.

The second suspect was described as a man in his 20s of undetermined race because he was wearing makeup that concealed his identity. He was about 6-ft.- 10-inches, 150 pounds and clean-shaven and wearing a dark-colored jacket and pants with a T-shirt. He was also wearing a white-and-black striped scarf around his neck and a black bowl-cut wig. He also was armed.

Police ask who sees either man to call (727)587-6730.
