Exploding dye pack slipped in bag of cash during robbery

ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- The Clay County Sheriff's Office is seeking a man who is suspected of robbing Compass Bank at 536 Blanding Boulevard on Tuesday morning.

The suspect entered the bank just after 11:30 a.m. and got in line to make a transaction with a teller, according to CCSO spokesperson Mary Justino.

The teller told deputies the suspect passed her a note demanding money, pointing an object at her that was concealed by his pants pocket.

The suspect is described as weighing 250-275 pounds, is 6'2" and was wearing a white baseball cap, black tennis shoes, gray pants and a black and blue plaid shirt. The man also had a deep sounding voice.

Justino said the suspect was given money with a dye pack, so he may sustain burns to his legs or hands if he was holding the money or had it in his pockets when the dye exploded.

Anyone who has any information on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to contact CCSO at (904) 264-6512 to speak to Det. Wes Smith.
