Man in painter's suit and goggles robs Brandon bank

BRANDON — A man wearing a painter's suit and goggles robbed a Brandon bank Tuesday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The man arrived at PNC Bank at 821 E Bloomingdale Ave. on a light blue mountain bike about 5 p.m. Tuesday. He confronted the teller, implying he had a bomb, and received an undisclosed amount of currency, the Sheriff's Office said. He fled on the bike to an unknown vehicle, authorities said.

Officials say the man is between the ages of 26 and 35, with brown hair and a bleached blond goatee.

Anyone with information can call the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800) 873-8477.
