Pinellas deputies looking for man who tried to rob Largo bank

LARGO — Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a man and a possible accomplice who tried to rob a Sun Trust Bank Friday afternoon.

At about 4:15 p.m., the suspect approached a teller at the branch at 3705 East Bay Drive and handed over a note demanding money. But the teller did not have any cash, deputies said. The suspect left the bank and slipped into the passenger seat of a dark gray 2000 or 2001 Nissan Maxima SE. The car had tinted windows, six-spoke alloy rims and a rear spoiler, deputies said.

Earlier in the day, the same man was seen entering another Sun Trust Bank at 3601 34th St. N in St. Petersburg. Approached by an employee, he left the bank and fled in the same awaiting vehicle, deputies said.

The suspect is a white man about 19 to 25 years old, six feet tall and about 175 pounds. He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with "Quick Silver" on the front, blue jeans, white sneakers and sunglasses. He had dark, short curly hair and a mustache, deputies said.

Anyone with information can call deputies at (727)582-6200. To remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
