Carlsbad Bank RobberSAN DIEGO — Authorities asked the public Monday for help in identifying a man who robbed a North County bank last week.

The thief approached a teller at the Comerica branch office in the 2600 block of El Camino Real in Carlsbad and demanded money shortly after 4:30 p.m. Friday, according to the FBI.

The bandit — who kept one of his hands thrust in a jacket pocket during the crime, as if holding a concealed gun — fled with an undisclosed amount of cash in a white 1990s-model extended-cab Toyota pickup truck.

Witnesses described him as a thin, roughly 5-foot-5-inch, 145-pound white man with a small mustache and tattoos on his neck up to the jaw line. He was wearing dark brown pants, a gray hooded sweat shirt and a black baseball cap, the FBI reported.Carlsbad bank robber
