Pasco deputies search for Land O'Lakes bank robber

LAND O'LAKES — Pasco deputies are investigating a bank robbery that happened Wednesday afternoon at the Bank of America at 22850 State Road 54.

A white man wearing a green plaid shirt, a brown hat and blue jeans came into the bank about 4 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash. Authorities said a hidden dye pack might have exploded as the robber was leaving the bank parking lot.

The robber was last seen heading westbound on foot. He is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall, and about 30 to 35 years old.

Anyone with any information about this case can contact the Pasco Sheriff's Office at 727-844-7711.
