Police: Man threatens to blow up Winter Haven bank

A warrant has been issued for a Winter Haven man who has been accused of threatening to blowup a bank.

Winter Haven police obtained a warrant for the arrest of a 40 year-old Surujpaul Persaud Ramlogan, a k a Tony, whose last known address was  2903 Avenue G N.W. .

Police say Ramlogan went to Sun Trust, 595 Cypress Gardens Blvd. SE, on Sept. 9 and complained to an associate about a bank transaction that was reversed from his account. According to the associate, Ramlogan had made a deposit utilizing a business check from the sale of a vehicle on Craigslist. However, 24 hours later after the deposit, the bank reversed the transaction upon learning the check was drawn on a closed account.

Ramlogan refused to accept the explanation and yelled, "How would you like it if I came back and shot everyone at the bank?" The representative advised him he was in a federally protected business and to refrain from making threats. He responded by twice saying, "I will come back and blow the bank up!" and walked out.

The incident had to be reported to Sun Trust Risk Management before law enforcement was contacted.

Investigators obtained a warrant for Ramlogan's arrest on charges of threats to discharge a destructive device, which is a felony.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ramlogan is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
