ZEPHYRHILLS - Sheriff's deputies are investigating a bank robbery at 1st National Bank of Pasco, 4518 Gall Blvd., Zephyrhills, the second within the past week in east Pasco.

The robbery occurred about 3:50 p.m. Monday, when a man entered the bank, displayed a note, and escaped on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No weapon was seen, and no one was hurt.

Witnesses described the robber as a white man about 6 feet tall, with a medium build, brown hair, and about 20-30 years old. He was last seen heading north on Gall Boulevard.

Deputies are still searching for the man who robbed a Dade City bank on March 20.

Witnesses told police the man entered the Bank of America at 3811 Fourth St. N just after 2:25 p.m. and waited in line until he reached a teller and asked for a bank slip. He left the counter to fill out the slip and again waited in line. When he returned to the counter, he presented the teller with the slip, which explained his demand for money. He then left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

That bank robber was described as a white man, 30-35 years old, 5 feet 7 and 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a brown shirt, shorts and a tan baseball cap with green lines and an unidentified logo. He had dirty blond hair, investigators said.
