The suspect is "believed to be involved in other recent Largo area bank robberies," according to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office media release.

The Wells Fargo Bank on Park Boulevard in Seminole was robbed around 5 p.m. Wednesday, Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives report.

The suspect entered the bank at 130999 Park Blvd. in Seminole and presented a note to a teller demanding cash, according to a media release.

The suspect "implied he had a gun. However, no weapon was seen," a sheriff's media release states.

The suspect was described as a white male with short-brown hair, who is approximately 6-foot-2. He appeared to weigh about 180 pounds and to be in his 30s or early 40s. He was "unshaven with crooked teeth and a tattoo on his upper chest/neck area," according to a media release.  

The suspect was described as wearing a black jacket with white stripes and dark-colored pants. His white baseball cap had an unknown design on the front, detectives report.

The suspect left the bank and 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 (late '90s to early 2000s), black colored Ford Mustang," according to a media release.

This suspect is "believed to be involved in other recent Largo area bank
robberies," according to a media release.
