The Sacramento Police Department is releasing surveillance photos of a bank robber with a bad sense of direction. Investigators hope someone will recognize him and come forward with identifying information.
Today, September 15, 2009, at 1:06 p.m., a masked man entered Umpqua Bank (1545 River Park Drive #101) and jumped the counter into the teller area. He then demanded money from an employee. The suspect then jumped back over the counter and exited the bank through the rear door, getting away with an undisclosed amount of money. The rear door of Umpqua Bank leads into an interior lobby shared by other business in the building. The suspect ran into one of those businesses (American River Bank), took off his mask, quickly realized he went the wrong way and ran back out; but not before being caught on their surveillance system. See photos below.
The suspect is described as a male Black adult in his 30's. He is between 6'2" and 6'4" in height and weighs approximately 220 pounds. He was wearing a black "Raiders" baseball hat, light colored long sleeve shirt (with vertical stripes), white pants and white tennis shoes. He wore a white mask over his face.
