Police Looking for Prolific Bank Robber

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the public's help.  Detectives are looking for any information that will lead them to a prolific bank robber who recently robbed three local banks. 

In all three incidents, the suspect entered the banks, approached a teller and produced a demand note for cash.  After obtaining cash, the suspect was seen fleeing the area.  In at least two of the robberies, he was seen riding away on a mountain bike.  Surveillance cameras captured the suspect's image.  The suspect is a male Black adult in his late 30's or early 40's.  He is between 5'6" to 5'9" in height with a slim build.  He may possibly be missing a front, top tooth.  In each of the robberies, the suspect is wearing a hat and sunglasses.  The hats varied, one had a "49ers" logo, another had a "USA" logo and in the third robbery, he was wearing a hat with a "Kings" logo.

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

March 16, 2010         Wells Fargo Bank     5600 block of Freeport Boulevard

March 18, 2010         Chase Bank               1300 block of Florin Road

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.
