A Florida man who was released from prison Wednesday after serving an eight-year prison sentence for a 2013 bank robbery, decided to rob another bank Thursday, just one day after his release, local authorities said.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Timothy Jones, 59, walked into Truist Bank on South Orange Blossom Trail and demanded $150,000 in $100 and $50 bills and that if he did not receive the money, he would shoot a banker. Afterward, deputies said he forcibly took a car — a dark-gray 2014 Toyota Camry — and fled the area, local station WTSP News reports.

Authorities wouldn’t say how much they believe he made off with. Orange County deputies say they believe it’s possible that Jones ditched the car and is traveling by bus. However, the car has not been found.

Jones was last seen wearing a blue short-sleeved polo shirt, blue cargo shorts and white socks, authorities said.

They are asking that anyone with information that could help detectives find the car or Jones call 407-836-4357 or 911.
