The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office hopes the release of surveillance video in last Friday’s robbery at Wells Fargo Bank will encourage additional tips from citizens.
On May 11, 2012, a man entered the branch at 8595 S. Tamiami Trail around 4:00 p.m., and handed the teller a note that demanded cash and implied he had a weapon. The suspect left the bank after the teller complied. He is described as a white male in his thirties, approximately 5’9” tall with a medium build and light facial hair around his mouth. He wore a grey shirt, light colored pants, white sneakers and a dark hat.
The video can be viewed on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/SarasotaSheriff
