Coral Gables Bank, Scene of Last Month's Hostage Situation, Robbed Again
|The suspect in this mornings heist was caught on tape|
The Miami Herald reports that man believed to be about 25-years-old, entered the bank at 1500 S. Dixie Highway with what seemed to be a gun under his shirt. He handed a note to a teller demanding cash, and then walked away with an undisclosed sum.
A security guard was in the bank, but was not alerted until after the heist.
The suspect was wearing a cap in a light hue, and a purple t-shirt with "a flashy animal print."
On September 24, the bank was the scene of another robbery attempt in which criminal kidnapped a teller from his home, strapped fake explosive devices to his chest, and forced him to open the vault before operating hours.
The suspects got away with about $100,000 and are still at large.
