SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who claimed to be carrying a concealed gun robbed a Pacific Beach bank Friday.
The thief handed a demand note to a teller at the Wells Fargo branch office in the 1300 block of Garnet Avenue about 10:15 a.m., according to the FBI. He fled with an undetermined amount of cash.
Witnesses described the bandit as a slender, tanned, roughly 5-foot-8-inch white man in his mid-40s to mid-50s, with brown eyes and gray beard growth. He was wearing blue jeans, a white long-sleeved shirt with the tails hanging out over his waist, dark shoes and a wide-brimmed straw sun hat.
Though the robber's written message stated that he had a gun, none was seen.
Wells Fargo is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the man's arrest and conviction. Tipsters may call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
