Police Release Sketch of Largo Bank Bandit
The suspect is alleged to have robbed four banks, including three PNC Bank branches in Clearwater and Largo as well as a credit union in New Port Richey, according to Clearwater Police.
The man walks in, typically wearing a black cap.
Each time, he pulls out a silver handgun and demands money from the bank teller.
In one incident, he was seen leaving in what appeared to be a red, four-door, Ford Focus, according to Clearwater Police.
It has happened four times already, and on Monday investigators released a sketch of the suspect in an attempt to identify the man who they say has robbed two PNC Banks in Clearwater, a branch in Largo and a credit union in New Port Richey in a little less than two months.
The man is described as white, 25 to 35 years old, about 5-foot-8 with a thin build and short, brown hair, according to police.
A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction. The reward was increased from $10,000 after the Largo robbery June 8.
