Man robs Citrus bank

Published March 17, 2007


CRYSTAL RIVER - A man who never flashed a weapon robbed a Crystal River bank Friday afternoon.

The crime happened at 3:52 p.m. at Regions Bank on U.S. 19 next to Welch Cabinet and Appliances. Police responded quickly because several officers were working a nearby traffic accident.

Gail Tierney, spokeswoman for the Citrus County Sheriff's Office, said the man walked into the bank, lingered in the lobby for a bit, then approached a teller.

"Give me all your big bills," he said.

He never made a threat or showed a weapon, but after the teller handed him some money, he asked for more, and she complied.

Authorities were reviewing video of the crime. They say the robber was wearing a baseball hat, jeans and a dark T-shirt.

He was between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall.
