PORT SAINT LUCIE, Florida – While robbers typically use a bandana to cover the nose, mouth, and lower half of their face to conceal their identity, one Florida man displayed his own unique fashion style by wearing a bandana backward during a bank robbery in Port Saint Lucie, Florida.
Just after 9 a.m. on Friday the 13th, 2019, a white male dressed in a camouflage long-sleeve shirt, red and black plaid pajama bottoms, with a red bandanna wrapped around his head, walked into a Bank of America and approached a bank teller.
When he reached the teller, the Florida man took out a note from his pocket and handed it to the teller.
On the note was written, “This is a robbery, give me all of your money!”
In response, the teller got the bank manager’s attention by waving him over.
As the manager approached the suspect, he asked the Florida man, “What’s on the note?”
But the suspect disregarded the bank manager’s question, grabbed his note, and exited the bank heading westbound toward a Chick-fil-A restaurant.
The suspect is described as being about 5’10” tall and possibly 40 to 50-years-old.
According to crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, bank robberies occur more often on Fridays than any other day of the week and in the southern United States more than any other region.
Regardless of the day of the week, bank robberies between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. were the most common.
If anyone has information about the incident or whereabouts of the suspect, police ask that you immediately call Detective Jarrett at 772-344-1056. You can be anonymous by calling the Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 800-273-TIPS (8477).
