While police were on the lookout for a 2002 Gray Kia Sportage stolen in a carjacking incident in Holly Hill around 11 a.m. this morning (Sept. 21), a robbery was reported at the Bank of America on South Nova Road. The suspect parked a vehicle matching the description of the carjacked Kia in front of the bank and ran inside, brandishing a handgun. The suspect ordered everyone to the floor and demanded that a teller place money into a canvas bag. The teller complied and the suspect ran out of the bank and fled in the vehicle.

The Kia was spotted by an Ormond Beach Officer in the US-1/Hand Ave. area. The officer lost sight of the vehicle but broadcast its direction of travel on the radio. Units from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and Holly Hill Police spotted the vehicle and gave chase. The vehicle crashed after stop sticks were deployed.

According to the Ormond Beach Police Department, the driver was injured in the crash and taken to the hospital. He is identified as Glenn Alexis Neal, 24. The firearm used in the bank robbery along with the stolen money was recovered from the vehicle. Charges are pending.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Ormond Beach Police at 386/677-0731 or Crimestoppers at 277-TIPS (8477) or 1-888-277-8477.

    Carjacked a car, then robbed a bank…and caught with the money and gun when he flipped the car and was partially ejected. Hope you enjoyed the outside free world while you were out here…you won’t be seeing it again for a long time.

      We are planning a trip and staying in ormond beach…..should we be thinking twice? We were choosing between orlando or the ocean and the ocean is way ahead…the news is of scary though

        Don’t think twice. Ormond Beach and all areas north (to Jacksonville’s wild frontiers anyway) are almost perfectly safe, especially compared to Orlando. These reports are rare here. Just be careful in the ocean. Rip currents are a greater concern than any type of crime.
