Pasco deputies say this man robbed a SunTrust bank at 14207 Fivay Road in Hudson. He did not show a weapon.

HUDSON — Deputies are looking for a man who robbed a SunTrust bank on Tuesday afternoon wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

Photos from surveillance video show the man described as between 50 and 55 years old with closely-cropped, receding white hair, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. About 3:39 p.m. Tuesday, he came to the bank at 14207 Fivay Road. He showed no weapon but asked for an undisclosed amount of money, which he was given.

He wore sunglasses in the bank and appeared to be talking with someone while resting his arm on the bank counter, according to images released from the surveillance video. The man left in an older-looking blue Jeep with a turtle on the license plate and headed east on Fivay Road, the report states.

Sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said the surveillance video quality will likely help deputies catch the suspect.

"Thankfully, we have pretty clear photos, so I would imagine that hopefully someone will see those and recognize who he is," Doll said. "

He said detectives working on the case may also have the license plate number for the Jeep, but he did not release the number because it had not been confirmed.

Anyone with information can call the Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711.
