Suspect sought in Belleair bank robbery

Posted: Updated:

Police in Belleair are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect believed to be responsible for robbing a bank.

Officials said the robbery happened on June 26 at the Fifth-Third bank located in the 600 block of Indian Rocks Road.

The suspect approached a teller with a note and demanded money. The teller placed the cash, which contained a dye pack, on the shelf. Officials said the suspect took the money and exited the bank.

Police said the suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5'8" with a thin build, wearing a teal, black, and white plaid shirt with a t-shirt underneath (unknown color) and khaki pants. The suspect had dreadlocks, which appeared to be a wig and was wearing a happy face "doo-rag" on his head.

He was last seen riding a blue or blue and silver bicycle eastbound on Wildwood Road towards the Pinellas Trail.
