Coral Springs Bank Robbed by Cell Phone Bandit

BBT-Robbery-oct1By: Chris Brunner

In what must seem like deja vu for Coral Springs residents, another bank robbery has just taken place in the City.

The FBI has just released photographs from a bank robbery that took place today at approximately 1:20 p.m. at a BB&T Bank branch, 4695 N. University Drive where a robber entered the bank and demanded money from a bank employee. There were no injuries. Money was taken, but the amount will not be released.

The bank robber is described as a white male wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt and cap while talking on a cellphone.

On August 20, a man the FBI has dubbed the “Filter bandit” robbed a Suntrust Bank branch, and on July 28, a Chase Bank branch was robbed by a man wearing plastic gloves to conceal his fingerprints. Both were in Coral Springs.  On January 5, two men entered the Mercantil Commercebank branch at Parkland Commons Shopping Center.

If anyone has information as to the identity of this bank robber, they are urged to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or go to Crimestoppers.
