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.
Anyone with information about the robbery was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
