NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. – A 33-year-old man is charged with armed robbery of a bank after the robbery of a SunTrust Bank in Neptune Beach on Friday.

According to police, a masked man entered the bank about 2:45 p.m. and produced an object wrapped in a black plastic bag and yelled: “Nobody is going to get hurt if you give me $50,000 from the vault.”

After being given an undermined amount of cash, the suspect ran from the bank through a wooded area and into a neighborhood.  While Neptune Beach officers searched for the robber, a postal worker called in a report of a suspicious person. A bicycle-mounted officer saw the man and issued several orders to stop, but the man refused. A few minutes later, officers caught up with the man and deployed a Taser weapon to take him into custody.

Police identified the man as Andrew Murray of Memphis, Tennessee.  He was charged with armed robbery and resisting arrest without violence.

Witnesses at the bank said the object the robber pulled in the bank was a stick. Police said Murray’s shorts matched the description given by witnesses, his eyes and nose matched those of the masked man in bank surveillance photos.

Officers said they also found a mask, gloves and pair of boots along the path through the woods.  Murray also had $124 in cash on him when he was arrested.
