SEMINOLE -- Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man who robbed a First National Bank in Seminole Thursday morning.
The man entered the bank around 9:45 a.m. with his face and hair concealed by a tan cloth with holes in it, the sheriff's office said. The man is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a blue shirt. He said he had a gun, but witnesses didn't see one. He left the bank moments later on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
"Apparently, this subject is not a new subject to us," said Marianne Pasha, a spokeswoman for the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. "He may have done as many as a dozen bank robberies, not all in our jurisdiction," she said. Sheriff deputies also say a small red car might have been involved in the heist, and they are working with witnesses to draw a composite picture of the man.
Anyone with information about this robbery should call the Crimestoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
