TAMARAC, Fla. – The FBI released pictures from a bank robbery that happened at the TD Bank branch at 7001 W Commercial Boulevard in Tamarac at 9 a.m. Thursday.

A robber entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money from bank employees, officials said.

Customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery, but there were no shots fired, and no injuries.

The man got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The robber drove to the bank in a silver Volkswagen Beetle. As he fled the bank in the Beetle, the robber was hit head on, at a low speed, by another car.

After the collision, the robber got out of the car, threatened the other driver with a gun, got back into the Beetle and left the area.

There were no reported injuries to the driver of the other car. As a result of the accident, the robber's Beetle should have some front-end damage.

Anyone with information on the robber is asked to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or call Crime Stoppers.
