Tampa bank robber strikes again

TAMPA — A bank robber passed a note to the teller and walked out Wednesday afternoon with cash, Tampa police said.

At 3 p.m., a man suspected of robbing two other banks in the past month walked into Bank of America at 100 N. West Shore Blvd. and stuck to his note-passing routine.

He is described as white, 5-foot-9, in his mid-60s, 150 pounds, with grey hair and wrinkles. He was wearing a long sleeve, button-down, brown sweater, blue jeans and a Tampa Bay Buccaneers baseball cap.

The other robberies were Feb. 1 at SunTrust Bank, 2002 S MacDill Ave., and Jan. 15 at Bank of America, 4825 S Manhattan Ave.

Anyone with information about these crimes can call the Tampa police at (813) 231-6130 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 843-8477.
