Phoenix Bank Robbed by Someone Who Actually Had a Gun

Well, the sun came out today, which, here in the Valley, often means a local law enforcement agency needs the public's help in tracking down some bozo who robbed a bank.

The latest bank heist is brought to you by the Phoenix Police Department, which announced today that it's looking for the man who robbed the Bank of America at 10459 N. 28th Drive in Phoenix yesterday afternoon.

The suspect, described as a 25-year-old black male, about 5-foot-6, and 130-140 pounds, entered the bank around 1:30 p.m.

He approached a teller and -- unlike many Valley bank robbers who manage to rob a bank with nothing more than a note -- he pulled out a gun he had hidden in a notebook.

The teller handed over the cash and the suspect was out the door.

He left on foot and no vehicle was seen, witnesses tell police.

At the time of the robbery the suspect was wearing a dark blue baseball hat, prescription glasses with dark plastic frames, a light colored pullover shirt with horizontal stripes, khaki pants, and white athletic shoes.

Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to this guy's arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department.
