He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene in a white compact car, which was stolen. 

Investigators suspect this is the same man who robbed another Mid-Florida Credit Union in Brandon back in October, wearing the same disguise. 

He is described as a 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall black male with a slender build and a black beard. He was wearing a wig with black dreadlocks and sunglasses during the robbery.

Those with information should call Pinellas Park detectives.
