Crime Stoppers: Stop! Thief!

By  | 

We had success last week using surveillance video to capture alleged credit card thieves. Now, how about the bank robber who forced an elementary school to be put under lockdown?

On May 26 at the Bank of America at 3430 Thomasville Road, a man approaches the counter.

"He went up to the teller station and demanded money from the teller, at which time the teller gave it to the suspect and was last seen leaving through the front door of the bank," said Crime Stoppers’ Kathy McGhin.

He was last seen until now, when the surveillance pictures caught him on three cameras set up in the bank.

As he pulls off the heist, at nearby Gilchrist Elementary School, it's fifth grade commencement day.

With word of the suspect search, the school is put under lockdown, but the graduation goes on as scheduled. The ground search for the suspect ends, but now the search resumes with your help.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 850-891-HELP. You could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
