San Marino bank robbed

SAN MARINO — A masked bank robber escaped, though apparently empty-handed, following a heist at a San Marino bank branch Friday, officials said.
The crime was reported about 11:45 a.m. at Chase Bank, 2270 Huntington Drive, San Marino police Officer Tim Tebbetts said in a written statement. The bank is located next door to the police station, and was previously robbed on Jan. 30.
The robber was described as a black man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, police said. He wore dark blue ski mask, a black sweat shirt, blue jeans, black shoes and black gloves.
He jumped over the counter at the bank and helped himself to all the cash in one of the tellers’ drawers, Tebbetts said.
No weapon was seen, officials added.
Police said the robber was last seen running south from the bank.
A bag of money apparently abandoned by the suspect was located nearby, Tebbetts said, however the robberwas not found.

    Is nothing sacred?, next to Police Dept in SAN MARINO, wasn’t that bank hit recently(Wamu).

  • People still rob banks today? What the heck? That seems so archaic. I can’t believe it’s actually located next to a police station. Those robbers certainly were confident.

    Natalie, Surely you’re kidding?,pull up , FBI bank robbery websites or for current photos, videos & audio. Besides being next to the police dept the bank sits next to the city hall and fire dept.. The robbers weren’t ‘confident’ they just knew the bank doesn’t care if they get robbed.
