A bank robber takes the money from a Wells Fargo Bank teller Jan. 9. Largo police are looking for information that will lead to the man’s identity.
LARGO – Largo police detectives are trying to determine the identity of a man wanted in the connection with two robberies and one attempted robbery at local Wells Fargo banks.

The first robbery occurred at the Wells Fargo Bank at 801 West Bay Drive on Jan. 3. The man was seen in surveillance photos showing a teller a note that demanded cash and pocketing the money in an inside pocket of his black suit jacket. The transaction took less than a minute, according to the time stamp on the surveillance video.

On Jan. 9, police believe the same suspect attempted to rob the Wells Fargo Bank at 2515 West Bay Drive at around 3:50 p.m. However, he left before completing the robbery.

He was successful at a third Wells Fargo location, on the corner of 131st Street and Park Boulevard in Seminole, less than an hour later. A teller at that bank handed the suspect a stack of bills at 4:54 p.m., according to surveillance footage.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 6 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 170 to 180 pounds. He appears to have a thin beard. He wore a black suit and a white baseball cap in the first robbery. During the robberies on Jan. 9, he wore a button-up shirt, a sports jacket and a white baseball cap.

The suspect may be driving a late 90s to early 2000, dark-colored Ford convertible Mustang, police reported.

To see a collection of photos of the suspect and a video of the vehicle, visit the department’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LargoPoliceDepartment.

Revised: Bank robbery on Jan. 9 occurred in Seminole.
