The crime was reported shortly after 11 a.m. at a Chase bank branch at 925 N. Hacienda Blvd., just south of Amar Road, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Steven Katz.
The robber was described as an Asian man in his late 20s or early 30s who wore black clothing, the lieutenant said.

The FBI, which investigates bank robberies, was notified of the crime, Katz said.
Officials were going through area surveillance cameras Saturday in hopes they would provide more information about the robber.

    If they would release the bank photos to the media maybe that would help, or is it secret,no up-dates on FBI bank robbery websites, they are very selective posting photos, have No info/comments and most of the stuff is so old it’s got mold, click on Serial Bandits and Press Release for yourself.
    Feds just released very detailed bank robbery information
    7-1-09 for the public…. if you’re interested in 2007 and 2008, assume robberies for July’09 will be posted sometime in 2010?
