Suspect named in Pasco bank robbery

PORT RICHEY — Authorities have released the name of a man they say robbed Capital City Bank on Tuesday.

Harold Van Horn, 69, wore a mustache, sunglasses, gloves and a green sweatshirt when he walked into the bank at 10290 Regency Park Blvd. at 12:25 p.m., the Pasco County Sheriff's Office reported. He demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount, a report states.

No weapons were reported and he fled on a bicycle. He remains at large.

Van Horn is on probation from a three-bank robbery spree in 2009. No guns were recovered in those cases. Deputies said he used a note threatening that he had a gun, so he was charged with armed robbery. Records show he was released in September 2010.
