Bank Robber in Lake Worth Pours Gas on Teller's Counter

A gun apparently wasn't threat enough for a bank robber who struck Wednesday afternoon at the SunTrust location on South Dixie Highway in Lake Worth. The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office reports that the gunman also poured gasoline on the counter of the teller's window.

Presumably, the man's point was to scare the teller into believing the bank was to be set on fire. He has not yet been found.
