Daly City police on hunt for bank bandit who snatched $14,000

Daly City police are on the hunt for a bandit who robbed a Chase bank branch of $14,000 Tuesday, according to police Sgt. Mike Barton .

The crook walked into the Daly City branch of the bank at 5 Southgate Ave. around 2:50 p.m., Barton said. He handed a note to the teller demanding cash. The teller turned over approximately $14,000 to the crook and he remains at large.

The bandit fled with the cash in a brown paper bag. He was reportedly last seen going toward Park Plaza Drive.

The bandit was described as a black man in his 50s, 6 feet tall and a stocky build, Barton said. The suspect, who was not believed to be armed, was wearing a beige suit with a white shirt and black shoes.

Anyone with information on this crook is encouraged to call the Daly City Police Department at its anonymous tip line at (650) 873-2467 (873-AIMS).
