The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a bank robbery that took place around 10:30 AM this morning at the Hancock Bank located at 14075 Emerald Coast Parkway in Destin.
Investigators say a black male, approximately 5’6” tall, with a thin build and dreadlocks came into the bank and jumped over the teller counter. He demanded money from the teller and attempted to gain access to the teller drawer but left the bank on foot empty handed. No weapon was seen.
Deputies located the suspect’s FSU hat a short distance from the bank but he may have also been wearing a second hat with fake dreadlocks attached.
A K9 attempted to track the suspect but was unable to locate him.
Anyone with information on the crime or any other crime is asked to contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers anonymously by calling (850) 863-TIPS, submit a web tip at www.emeraldcoastcrimestoppers.com or send a mobile tip using the P3 Tips Mobile Application.
