DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Darlington Police have identified a suspect in the attempted robbery at the Bank of America in Darlington Wednesday afternoon.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of 28-year-old Michael E. Monaghan of Naples, Florida, according to a Facebook post by the Darlington Police Department. He is wanted for three robberies in Winter Park Florida: one bank and two grocery stories.

He is 6-feet tall, about 150 pounds in weight, and believed to be driving a small four-door silver car, possibly a KIA or Saturn, an official stated.

"If you see this suspect do not approach him he is considered to be armed and dangerous," said DPD information office Sgt. Kim Nelson. If he is spotted, call 911 immediately.

Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd reported the attempted robbery of the Bank of America in Darlington from his twitter account.

Darlington Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Nelson says the man entered the bank on South Main Street around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, July 31. The man was eating a lollipop and appeared calm and collected, she says.

When the man gave the bank teller a note that demanded money, he passed out, causing the suspect to run. He was not seen with a weapon.

The suspect is described as a 6-foot tall white male, weighing between 135 and 140 pounds with sunglasses and a tattoo on his right leg. He has brown hair and was wearing a black shirt with black shorts.

The suspect may be driving a Blue Impala.
