On 5/6/13 at approximately 1:13 p.m. a white male suspect entered the BB&T Bank located at 35098 US Highway 19 North in Palm Harbor.  The suspect approached the teller and placed a black colored backpack on the counter and demanded the clerk to fill it with money.  As the teller was putting money in the backpack, the suspect lifted his shirt and displayed a black colored handgun he had on his waistband.

As the suspect was leaving the location, he dropped a small aerosol can labeled “Warning-Chlorine”.  The suspect fled the bank, leaving the can behind.

The suspect was seen arriving in the area of the bank on a motorcycle shortly before the robbery.  After leaving the bank, he was last seen headed southbound on US Highway 19 then turning westbound on Nebraska Avenue.
