Pasco deputies search for Chase Bank robber

HOLIDAY — A man robbed the Chase Bank at 3320 U.S. 19 about 4:50 p.m. Monday. No one was injured, authorities said.

A teller described the man as "buff," said Pasco County sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll. He said the suspect is a muscular, black man, about 6 feet 3 and 170 to 200 pounds. He had a beard and wore all black — baseball cap, sweater, pants — and large sunglasses. Witnesses said he could be between 28 and 40 years old.

Doll said the man gave a note to the teller and then fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

Doll urges anyone with information about this case to call Detective Matt Myers toll-free at 1-800-854-2862, ext. 7850.
