Reward offered for leads on Belleair bank robbery

Times staff

BELLEAIR — Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to a bank robbery arrest.

A man entered the Fifth-Third Bank at 601 Indian Rocks Road N Wednesday morning and gave the teller a note in which he demanded money, Belleair police said.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police described the robber as a white man about 5-foot-8 with a tattoo on his right arm. He was last seen wearing a teal, black and white plaid shirt and khaki pants. The man also had dreadlocks, but detectives believe he may have been wearing a wig, along with a doo-rag printed with a happy face, police said.

He left the bank on a blue or silver and blue bicycle and headed east on Wildwood Road toward the Pinellas Trail. After the robbery, detectives discovered the robber visited the bank June 21 without a disguise.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County anonymously at (800)873-8477.
