LARGO — A reward is being offered for tips that help authorities identify a man who robbed a bank Friday morning in Largo.

Security cameras there captured images showing him dressed in dark pants and a dark jacket with white lettering on the back. He is described as a black man between 25 to 30 years old and about 5-feet 9-inches tall with a thin build.
