The Collier County Sheriff’s Office has released video surveillance photos in connection with a robbery at an East Naples bank on Wednesday.

CCSO is asking for the public’s help in identifying the man in the photos because he is wanted for questioning by deputies in connection with the robbery.

Deputies say a man entered the IberiaBank at 775 Airport-Pulling Road shortly before 11:30 a.m. The man walked up to the counter and presented a teller with a note demanding money.

The teller gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash and he left the bank, deputies said.

The man did not display a weapon and no injuries were reported, deputies said.

Deputies said the man was described as white, 40 to 50 years old, and 6 feet tall with an average build. He had had gray hair that appeared to be long which he wore tucked under a cream ball cap.

He wore dark sunglasses, a white shirt with a flower print, dark jeans and dark shoes.

An investigation continues.
