Suspect Sought In Carrollwood Bank Robbery

TAMPA – Hillsborough County sheriff’s detectives need the public’s assistance in identifying a man seen in surveillance images robbing a Carrollwood bank last week.

Just after 4 p.m. Friday, the man parked a gold Dodge Caravan van in the parking lot of a Target store at 15240 N. Dale Mabry Highway, deputies said.

The man walked across Carrollwood Springs Boulevard to a BB&T bank branch, 15312 N. Dale Mabry Highway. In the bank, he stood in line for a few moments, then handed a note to a teller demanding money, deputies said.
