The bank robber taking possession of a wad of cash at Ormond Beach’s SunTrust bank Friday afternoon.

Sept. 3 update: the suspect may have been the same suspect who robbed a St. Johns bank on Sept. 3. See the story here.

Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies and Ormond Beach police are looking for a man believed to be involved in an attempted robbery at Hancock Bank in Palm Coast and an actual robbery at SunTrust Bank in Ormond Beach Friday afternoon.

The man entered Hancock bank at 300 Palm Coast Parkway Northeast a little after 4 p.m. and demanded money from the teller. He displayed no weapon, nor did he suggest that he had one. When he was told she had no money, he fled the bank.

About 20 minutes later a man fitting the very same description pulled off a heist at SunTrust Bank at 1470 W Granada Blvd. in Ormond Beach where he proceeded directly to one of the bank tellers, said he wanted to make a withdrawal, then said the bank was being robbed. He was specific as to how he wanted the cash removed and given to him.

As in Palm Coast, he did not display a weapon nor did he imply that he had one. He left the bank with an amount of money police did not disclose, though surveillance images show him taking possession of a considerable stash.

He may have been driving a silver vehicle, Ormond Beach police reports.

At either bank, the man made no attempt to cover his face, which has several distinctive characteristics, most caught on surveillance cameras. He is described as a white male, 25 to 30 years of age wearing dark pants, a white dress shirt with a loose black and white tie and a multi-colored Jacksonville Jaguars cap. He also had a band aid on the right cheek of his face and a light partial beard with no chin hair. And he wore glasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Offices at (386) 313-4911 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-277-8477. You may remain anonymous and you could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

    Don’t banks have silent alarm buttons where the teller can activate and law enforcement will be able to respond before these idiots leave the building?

    • Ray Thorne says:

      I would think the best thing for the safety of those at the bank would be for the robber to have left. If police approach while the robber is still there it could turn into a hostage situation.

    • Curious says:

      You would never want to be inside this building with a robber when the cops show up or you’ll be a hostage. Let them get into the parking lot and then let the police snag them.

  2. WhatJobs says:

    Does bank robbery pay better then collecting monthly welfare, food stamps, and housing assistance money ? Because the way this country is going, it won’t be long until this kind of crime is going to be an every day occurrence .

    • NortonSmitty says:

      Let me be the first to congratulate you for your open mindedness and respect for equality you have displayed here by posting something this offensive regarding a felon who is obviously white. Bravo.

      WHERE ARE THE FUCKING JOBS PROMISED BY REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES? When you pay people a living wage, they will get off of SNAP, Welfare and Housing Assistance.

    This fool better spend his ill gotten gains quickly, he will soon be sitting in “Stoney Lonesome” for a long period of time, due to those great security cam photos.. Lockem up Danno.

    Robbery, the new career path. Well, why not….our politicians have been getting away with it for years.

    Fake five o’clock shadow.

  6. We could ask NSA at Ft. Meade to let us review the film. They should have his car and the path he has traveled via satellite photo. They know the exact hour and location maybe even street view.

    When are US banks going to do like Europe and make double trap doors at entrances to banks?
