Police search for man who robbed bank in downtown St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG — Police were searching for a man who robbed a bank Wednesday afternoon in downtown St. Petersburg.

The man walked up to a teller about 4 p.m. at Whitney Bank at 100 2nd Ave. N and displayed a note demanding money, police said. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the man left the bank.

Bank tellers placed a dye pack with the stolen money, which marked some of the bills shortly after the man fled, police said. Some of the stolen cash was found in an alley south of the bank.

The suspect is described as being in his mid-20s with blonde hair. He was wearing a blue and green windbreaker, a green ball cap and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about the robbery should call St. Petersburg Police at (727) 893-7780.
