Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an attempted bank robbery at Wells Fargo, 8595 South Tamiami Trail today.

The suspect entered the building at 12:42 p.m., showed the teller the butt of a black handgun and pointed to the cash drawer. At that point he got nervous and fled the bank on foot, heading westbound across U.S. 41 toward a CVS store.

The suspect is 5-foot-11-inches tall, with a slim build and pale skin. He has dyed whitish-blonde hair, and was wearing black, wrap-around mirrored sunglasses, a faded denim jacket and light colored jeans.

Anyone with information is encouraged by the Sheriff’s Office to call Criminal Investigations at 941-861-4952 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 941-366-TIPS (8477), online at www.sarasotacrimestoppers.com or via text message by texting TIP109 plus a message to CRIMES (274637).
