NORWALK — A man threatening to have a bomb robbed a Norwalk bank branch Wednesday, authorities said.
The heist took place about noon at the U.S. Bank, 13928 Pioneer Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Glenn Emery said.
A white man in his mid-40s, wearing a black shirt, mustard-colored jacket and and a blue L.A. Dodgers baseball cap entered the store and handed a teller a note, officials said.
“The note stated he had a bomb and demanded money,” Emery said.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber fled the bank, the sergeant said. Deputies searched the area but did not find him.

  • Speaking of Bank Terrorists it appears two ex-con crackheads,armed wearing hoodies,masks and bad attitude pulled a brazen take-over 211 at 1st Financial Credit Union on Workman Rd. West Covina at 0930hr today.Fri. 12-17.
    They ruined the Christmas Spirit by pistol-whipping a innocent customer and cleaning out the vault. If this follows the usual Crip M.O. they cased the location first for visible signs of pro-active security then jack the bank with ‘Shock & Awe’, and gone in 90 seconds.
