ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Police say they have arrested a man who robbed a bank Monday afternoon in St. Petersburg.

The St. Pete Police Department had previously released a surveillance image of a man in a baseball cap and asked for the public's help with identifying him.

On Tuesday morning, the agency announced 31-year-old Charles (Chad) Reschar had been arrested and charged with robbery.

Investigators say it was around 3:50 p.m. Monday when he walked into the Regions Bank on 66th Street North and passed a note to the teller. That note, police say, demanded money.

He implied he had a weapon but didn't show it, according to law enforcement. Authorities say he walked away with cash but did not say how much.

Anyone with more information about the robbery is asked to call the St. Petersburg Police Department at 727-893-7780 or text SPPD plus their tip to TIP411.
