LA CRESCENTA — A robber used a threatening note to rob a Bank of America branch Thursday, officials said.
The crime was reported about 1 p.m. at the Bank of America branch at 3141 W. Foothill Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Blume said.
The robber was described as a Latino man in his 30s, officials said. A surveillance photo released by the FBI shows the robber had a mustache and goatee and wore a white hat and striped, long-sleeved shirt.
He entered the bank and handed a threatening note to a teller demanding cash, Blume said.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the robber was last seen leaving the area in a small, white, older-model sedan, the lieutenant added.
Deputies searched the area but did not locate the robber, he said.
The FBI, which handles bank robberies, is assisting the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department with the investigation.
