Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Around 11:20 this morning, a slim black man -- about six-foot-one and wearing camouflage pants, a yellow shirt, and a black skull cap -- walked into the Wachovia Bank at 160 SW Eighth St. He waited patiently in line, and when he got to a teller, he handed her a note demanding cash. Police aren't saying how much he asked for or what the note said, but the teller complied. The man took off on foot, heading eastbound. 


Unfortunately for the bandit, the heist was caught on tape. We've got a few more picture after the jump. Anyone with information is urged to call the City of Miami Police Department's Robbery Unit at 305-579-6500 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
