Police closed the southbound lanes of Interstate 805 in Clairemont for about 15 minutes this afternoon while searching for evidence from an hour-old bank robbery.
Officers shut down the freeway south of State Route 52 shortly before 5 p.m. to look for something they believed might have been tossed by the bandit after robbing a Bank of America branch office on Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, according to police and the California Highway Patrol.
Commuter traffic backed up heavily to the north in the area and remained more congested than usual even after officers reopened the interstate about 5:15 p.m.
It was not immediately clear if police found what the robber may have thrown out of his getaway car.
