Robber hits Federal Highway bank; may have an accomplice, feds say

Clad in dark clothing, face covered in a bandana, wearing gloves and toting a backpack, an armed robber held up a bank in Fort Lauderdale Wednesday morning.

It happened shortly before 8 a.m. at the BB&T Bank branch at 6400 N. Federal Highway.

The FBI released security surveillance images of the robber in the hopes of turning up leads in the case.

The robber — who may have had an accomplice — went into the bank, “displayed a weapon and demanded money from a bank employee,” the agency said in a news release.
