Man in carpenter garb robs Monroe-area bank

MONROE - Monroe County sheriff's detectives are searching for a man dressed as a carpenter who robbed a Monroe-area Key Bank branch at gunpoint early yesterday morning.

The suspect entered the branch at 15303 South Dixie Hwy. about 9:20 a.m., flashed a handgun, and demanded money before fleeing on foot with an undetermined amount of cash, deputies said.

Law enforcement officials believe the suspect is the same man who robbed a Monroe Bank and Trust branch a few weeks ago.
