Yesterday, officials took into custody a serial bank robber, 44-year-old Jeromee Wade Greenough after he robbed the TD Bank in Crystal River.

Greenough entered the bank, shortly before noon yesterday, where he approached the tellers counter and demanded money while brandishing a firearm. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled in a white vehicle.

CCSO deputies and detectives promptly responded to the scene to investigate. Working closely with our partners at the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), Greenough was located traveling down Fort Island Trail. When officials attempted to contact the suspect, he sped off attempting to strike law enforcement with his vehicle in an effort to avoid capture.

Subsequently, officials deployed spikes strips, which deflated the suspect’s tires. After continuing to travel on the deflated tires, FHP successfully performed a pursuit intervention technique to further immobilize the vehicle. Greenough exited his vehicle and armed himself with a rifle from inside the vehicle prior to taking off and running toward a playground area.

A use of force situation occurred where Greenough was shot by an FHP Trooper. The trooper and all law enforcement involved were unharmed during this dangerous encounter with Greenough. After providing immediate first-aid on scene, Greenough, was then transported to a medical facility for his non-fatal injuries. As with all law enforcement involved shootings, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will be investigating this incident.

Greenough will be charged with robbery with a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and fleeing and eluding law enforcement.
