On June 7, 2013 at approximately 4:04 p.m., a white male suspect parked a gold van within the Target parking lot located just south of the business. The suspect walked across Carrollwood Springs Boulevard and entered the BB&T Bank located at 15312 Dale Mabry Hwy N at approximately 4:06 p.m. He stood in line for a few moments waiting for the next available teller and then handed the teller a note demanding money. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency, the suspect calmly exited the bank and got into his van. He fled south through the Target parking lot, then south on Dale Mabry Highway.
