Bank robbery note leads to manhunt

Hernando County authorities were searching for a suspect Friday afternoon after a man entered Regions Bank, 1500 Pinehurst Drive, about 2 p.m. and handed a teller a note, demanding money.

Authorities said the man did not display a weapon. No one was injured.

The Sheriff's Office described the suspect as white and about 6 feet tall. He had short blond hair and was believed to be in his 30s. He was about 140 to 170 pounds and was wearing a black hat and a black graphic T-shirt with blue jeans.

He left the bank on foot, heading south. Authorities were not sure if he got into a vehicle.

The Sheriff's Office dispatched canine and air units to assist in the search.
