Police want help finding St. Petersburg bank robber

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are asking for help finding a robber who made off with cash from a local bank.

The robbery happened at 12:14 p.m. Monday at the Bank of America branch at 9700 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, police said.

The suspect handed the teller a note demanding money and implied he had a gun, police said. He left the building in what witnesses described as a red-and-tan Ford Explorer, police said.

The man, who was caught on surveillance video, was described as white, about 5 foot 8 inches tall, with a slender build. He was wearing a jean jacket with "SEAN JON" written on the back, police say, a baseball cap with gold piping on its edges and dark aviator-style glasses.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the robbery squad at (727) 893-7179 or Det. Billy Crews at (727) 893-7266.
