Man robs bank in Zephyrhills

ZEPHYRHILLS — A man robbed a SunTrust bank Saturday morning in Zephyrhills. While customers — including a heavily pregnant woman and a child — waited in line, the man told a bank teller he had a weapon and demanded money.

According to the Zephyrhills Police Department, the man was given an undisclosed amount of cash and left the building at 7344 Gall Blvd. He slipped into a gray car waiting for him outside and headed north toward Pretty Pond Road.

The robber is described as a black man between 20 and 30 years old. His height is between 5 feet 9 and 6 feet 1 and he weighs 160 to 170 pounds. He wore a maroon FSU baseball cap, white-framed sunglasses, a white T-shirt and shorts.

The Zephyrhills Police Department asks anyone with information to call (813) 780-0050.
