Bank Robbery Suspect

We’re starting Wanted Wednesday with our active search for a bank robbery suspect. Detectives are asking our community to help identify this suspect who wore a distinctive wig when committing the crime on Monday. Please take a moment to review this surveillance video. On March 19th, at about 9:20 am, officers were called to the 1000 block of Largo Center Drive in Largo for a bank robbery. Surveillance video shows the suspect wearing what appears to be a strawberry-blonde wig, dark clothing, sunglasses and gloves. He walked into the business, approached a teller and demanded cash. Once he got the money, he walked out. It’s believed he then headed to the District and committed another bank robbery there a short time later. If you have information, please call 301-772-4905 or 1-866-411-TIPS. We are offering a cash reward.
