Tampa robber hits two more banks in Tennessee, police say

TAMPA — A Tampa bank robbery suspect who hit a BB&T last week appears to have moved on to Nashville, Tenn., police say.

Detectives believe the robber, who hit two Nashville banks earlier this week, is becoming more violent, and the FBI is now involved in the cases.

During the second Nashville robbery, the suspect displayed a gun, according to Tampa detectives.

Investigators said the robber is believed to be Danny Ray Madison, who had recently been released from federal prison after serving 10 years for bank robbery. In November 2000, he committed five bank robberies in downtown Tampa. The first bank he robbed then was the same bank he robbed on March 13, police said.

The FBI has billboards up throughout Tampa with the suspect's photo. Madison, 46, has a last known address of 4102 W Hillsborough Ave., according to a police press release.

Anyone with information about the robberies or who recognizes the suspect is asked to call the Tampa Police Department at (813) 231-6130.
