Can You Identify This Bank Robber?

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a bank robber believed to be responsible for two separate bank robberies.

On January 27, 2009, at 5:42 p.m., a man walked up to a teller at the Bank of America (inside Save Mart – 5600 Folsom Boulevard) and demanded money from the cash drawer. The suspect then placed a white plastic grocery type shopping bag on the counter and held it open for teller. The suspect indicated he had a gun, however, no gun was seen. The teller complied and placed the money from the drawer in the bag.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic man, 25-30 years-old, 5’7” tall and weighing between 170 and 180 pounds. He had a dark mustache and goatee. He was wearing a yellow and white baseball hat, a light colored jacket, a blue plaid button-up shirt and white tennis shoes. (A photo from the surveillance video is attached)

On February 17, 2009, at 2:44 p.m., a man entered the Bank of America located at 4740 Freeport Boulevard. He walked up to a teller and produced a white plastic bag. He demanded all the money from the cash drawer. The teller complied. The suspect then walked out of the bank.

He was described as a Hispanic man, in his late 20’s, 5’10” tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He had black hair and a thin mustache. He was wearing a black and white baseball hat with a cross emblem on the front (possibly a West Coast Choppers logo), and a black jacket. (A photo from the surveillance video is attached)

Investigators believe these two robberies may be related.

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or (800) AA-Crime. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
