San Carlos police searching for bank robbery suspect

San Carlos police today are trying to identify a man who robbed a Bank of America Wednesday afternoon.

The suspect, who appeared to be unarmed, entered the bank in the 700 block of Laurel Street around 4:40 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money, police Detective Jeff McCourtie said.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect left the bank and got into a dark gray Acura parked near the back of the building.

The vehicle had rear tail-light damage, police said.

The suspect is described as a thin white man in his 30s with a tan complexion, police said. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap and bright blue shirt.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact San Carlos police at (650) 802-4277.
