Daytona Beach Police are looking for a man who held-up a bank along Beville Road Thursday. A report on the Police Department website says the man walked into the Fifth Third Bank around 2:45 Thursday afternoon, and gave the teller a note demanding, “…all of your hundreds, fifties and twenties….” Police say the note also stated several times that the suspect was not joking. The suspect was then given money, including a dye pack, which was placed into his black plastic bag.

Police say the suspect then left the bank, which is between Nova Road and Clyde Morris Boulevard, and headed into a woods west of the bank, where the dye pack exploded. Police report that the suspect then dropped the bag, and also removed his hat and jacket which were found nearby.

Police describe the suspect as a white male, around six feet in height with a thin build, in his mid to late twenties and wearing shorts, pants and a white t-shirt. The suspect also has either a black eye or a birth mark under his right eye. Police say anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Daytona Beach Police Department at 386-671-5100.
