The FBI quickly found the stolen bakery van. But they found neither the man nor the money from the July 5 armed robbery of a West Miami-Dade TD Bank.
So, now they’re offering money for help finding the robber they’ve nicknamed “Trigger Happy Bandit.”
A reward up to $15,000 is being offered for information helping them capture and convict the criminal who hit the TD Bank at 7400 SW 40th St. around 11:15 a.m. on July 5. What differentiates this criminal from the common modern bank robber, who usually uses a note and maybe the threat of a weapon, was that this robber accompanied his cash demand by firing a gun several times in a populated bank.
No customers or employees got shot before the robber escaped with the bread in a van used to deliver bread. The van belonged to Zak the Baker, Zak Stern’s Wynwood kosher bakery and deli. One of Stern’s deliverymen made a drop at a Coconut Grove restaurant that morning and emerged to find the truck missing.
Never miss a local story.
The van was found at 6300 Manor Drive in South Miami.
Anyone with information on this crime can call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
