Around 11am today, we received a call about a bank robbery at the BB&T Bank located at 182 37th Ave North. The suspect told a teller he had a bomb inside a bag he was carrying, and demanded money.
The suspect dropped the bag on his way out and left the bank premises in a black BMW.
Due to the bomb threat, the Tampa Bomb Squad was called to the scene. They investigated and found there was no threat.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 30’s around 5’5 - 5’8inches tall with a medium build.
Anyone with any information about the robbery is asked to call SPPD at 727-893-7780 or anonymously send us tip by texting “SPPD” and your tip to TIP-411.
