UPDATE: Bank robbery suspect in custody: Pensacola Police

UPDATE (7:04 p.m.): Pensacola Police are looking for Gentry Rhodes, 57. Rhodes is wanted in connection to the Truist Bank robbery that happened off Creighton Road.

Rhodes, who was released from jail June 23, may be driving a stolen 1985 Mercedes 300D. The tag number on the Florida plate is IP9-831. If you have any information about Rhodes or the stolen car, call the Pensacola Police Department at 850-435-1900.

UPDATE (10:44 a.m.): Pensacola Police say a man walked into Truist Bank Tuesday morning, handed a teller a note demanding cash, threatened to “kill everybody in the bank,” and left with an “undisclosed amount of cash.”

Police said the suspect, a man believed to be in his 70s, fled after the robbery. His identity is unknown, as well as whether he fled on foot or in a vehicle.

“(The suspect) said if (the bank teller) didn’t hurry up that he was going to kill everybody in the bank, so we’re taking this one very seriously as we do with all bank robberies,” said PPD public information officer Mike Wood. “He got away with a sum of cash. We don’t know what that was yet. We’re asking if anybody knows anything about this to give us a call.”
