DIAMOND BAR — Detective have renewed their call for the public’s help in tracking down a man who robbed a bank last year.
The robbery took place about 1:30 p.m. Aug. 30, 2011, at the Cal Bank and Trust, 1200 S. Diamond Bar Blvd., according to Detective Angel Matute of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau.
Authorities have a high-quality surveillance images of the suspect and believe he may still be in the area, so they again called on the public this week to see if they recognize the bandit, Matute said.
“(The suspect) has committed other crimes in the same general vicinity along Diamond Bar Boulevard,” according to a wanted flyer issued by the sheriff’s department. “It is believed that he either lives in, or regularly frequents, the area.”
Information on other crimes the man is suspected of was not available Friday.
Investigators described the robber as a white man in his 40s, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, with brown hair, blue eyes and a thin brown and gray beard. He wore a baseball cap, black rimmed glasses, a white long-sleeved shirt with a zipper and denim shorts, and he carried a black bag.
“Due to the thin growth of beard, the suspect may have only grown the beard to help disguise his face. He may now be clean-shaven,” according to the wanted flyer.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Walnut-Diamond Bar Station at 909-595-2264.
