The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is seeking two men who robbed a bank at U.S. 19 and Gulf Trace Boulevard in Aloha Gardens. The Barnett Bank at 2865 U.S. 19 was robbed shortly before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, said sheriff's spokesman Jon Powers. The men, one black, one white, each between 18 and 25 years old, were armed with handguns and wore masks, Powers said. One man ordered the four tellers and two customers to get down on the floor while the other jumped over the counter and took an undisclosed amount of cash from the registers. The men were last seen running southwest across the parking lot, Powers said. No shots were fired and no one was injured as a result of the robbery.
