Police want help in finding prolific bank robber

SACRAMENTO — City detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding a prolific bank robber who robbed three local banks this month and twice made his getaway on a mountain bike.

In all three incidents, the suspect entered the banks, approached a teller and produced a demand note for cash. In at least two of the robberies, he was seen riding away on a mountain bike.

Surveillance images of the suspect show him to be a black male in his late 30s or early 40s. He is between 5-6 and 5-9 in height with a slim build. He may possibly be missing a front, top tooth.

In each of the robberies, the suspect was wearing sunglasses and a hat, whose design varied from a “49ers” logo to a “USA” logo to a Sacramento Kings hat during the third robbery.

Detectives hope someone will recognize the suspect from surveillance photos and come forward with identifying information.  Bellow is a list of the banks that were robbed by this suspect:

• March 16: Wells Fargo Bank on the 5600 block of Freeport Boulevard

• March 18: Chase Bank on the 1300 block of Florin Road

• March 19: Wells Fargo Bank on the 10 block of Park Center Drive

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to these crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
