Man ready for summer robs Boynton Beach bank

Deputies say man robbed Wells Fargo branch

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A man who looked as if he was dressed for summer vacation walked into a South Florida bank and robbed it Monday morning, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were called to a robbery at the Wells Fargo branch in the 9900 block of Boynton Beach Boulevard about 9 a.m.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the man, who was wearing sunglasses and short shorts, approached the teller, handed her a plastic bag with a note implying he had a weapon and demanded cash.

He received an undetermined amount of cash and walked out of the bank. No weapon was actually seen.

Anyone who recognizes the man from surveillance video of the robbery is asked to call Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
