Police search for Clearwater bank robber

CLEARWATER — Police are investigating a Wednesday morning bank robbery at a Fifth Third Bank.

Clearwater police said a man walked into the bank at 1150 Cleveland St. about 10 a.m., handed a note to the teller demanding money and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man implied he had a weapon, said Clearwater police spokeswoman Beth Watts.

The man is described as white with a pale complexion, in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 10, 160 to 170 pounds with a thin build and a goatee. He has a teardrop tattoo next to his right eye.

He also had adhesive bandages on the right side of his neck, which detectives suspect may have been used to cover a tattoo, police said.

The man was last seen wearing a black knit hat, a gold Ecko T-shirt, a black leather jacket and blue jeans.

Police tried to track the man with a dog but were unable to find him.

Police ask anyone who can identify the man or who has information about this crime to call the Clearwater Police Department Tip Line at (727) 562-4422. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
