Alhambra Police Searching for Bank Robbery Suspect

(CNS) – Police on Tuesday asked for the publics help to identify a suspect they believe robbed the Bank of the West on Valley Boulevard last Saturday around 10 a.m.

The suspect handed the teller a note and also verbally demanded money, and was given an undisclosed amount of cash, said Sgt. J. Flannagan, a detective with the Alhambra Police Department.

No one was injured and no weapons were seen during the holdup, Flannagan said.

The suspect was described as a black man in his late 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds, according to Flannagan, who said the bank’s closed-circuit cameras captured several clear images of the bandit.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity was asked to call Flannagan at (626) 570-5161. Tips can be left anonymously.
