“Bank jugging” is a term used when criminals target people who withdraw cash
from banks or ATMs. These criminals watch for individuals leaving with bank
envelopes or bags, then follow them to steal the money.

The Tampa Police Department is investigating a bank jugging theft that
occurred on the afternoon of Friday, April 5th, 2024.

W. Kennedy Blvd. after the victim withdrew money. The victim then parked at a
nearby restaurant in the 2100 block of W. Kennedy Blvd. The suspect broke into

a blue disposable mask, white hoodie, and yellow & black gloves. He was seen
