Police seek man who robbed two Tampa banks

TAMPA — The man who robbed a South Tampa bank last month struck again just over a week ago, according to police. Authorities released new surveillance video of the man Monday in the hope that someone will recognize him.

The more recent robbery happened about 11:45 a.m. Sept. 14 at Chase Bank at 2001 N Dale Mabry Highway, police said. Surveillance video captured images of the man as he walked into the bank, wrote a demand note on a deposit slip, and approached a teller, police said. He gave the note to the teller, saying he had a gun and demanding cash.

The teller handed him a stack of bills and the man walked out of the bank.

The earlier robbery happened about 11 a.m. Aug. 31 at Regions Bank at 5115 S Dale Mabry Highway. The same man walked in and robbed the bank in a similar manner, fleeing on foot, police said.

He is described as a thin man in his mid-30s with a large tattoo on his neck and a single gold tooth. In the latest robbery, he wore a black ball cap, a sport jacket over a button-down dress shirt, baggy jeans, and white sneakers.

Anyone with information regarding the robber's identity is asked to call Tampa police at (813) 231-6130.
