Crime

Seminole, Florida -- The search is on in Pinellas County for a man who robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in Seminole Wednesday evening and is suspected in other robberies in the Largo area.

The most recent robbery occurred Wednesday around 5 p.m. 

Pinellas Sheriff's deputies say the man walked into the bank in the 13000 block of Park Boulevard and handed the teller a demand note, told them not to set off any alarms, and implied he had a gun.

After leaving the bank, he was last seen running around the east side of the building, then through a shopping center parking lot where he may have gotten into the front passenger seat of an older model, possibly late 90's to early 2000's, black colored Ford Mustang. He then drove off northbound on 131st Street N.

He is described as a white male in his 30's to early 40's, approximately 6'2", 180 lbs, with short brown hair, unshaven with crooked teeth and a tattoo on his upper chest/neck area.  He was last seen wearing dark colored pants, a black jacket with white stripes and a white colored baseball hat with an unknown design on the front of it.

Largo Police say this suspect is believed to be involved in at least two others in the Largo over the past week: one on Jan. 3 at the Wells Fargo Bank at 801 West Bay Drive and the other on Jan. 9 at the Wells Fargo at 2515 West Bay Drive. The Jan. 9 robbery at the West Bay Drive bank, was unsuccessful so he left and went to the 131st Street location and robbed that one.

Anyone with information that may assist detectives in this investigation is asked to contact Detective Keith Johnson of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 727-582-6200; or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
