Corona Police Search For Robber Who Held Up Bank Of America

CORONA (CBS) — A portly thief who robbed a Corona bank remained at large Thursday.

The heist occurred around 11 a.m. Wednesday at a Bank of America branch at 204 E. Sixth St., according to Corona police.

The unidentified suspect walked into the bank and slipped a note to a teller saying he was armed and wanted money, Sgt. Frank Barron said.

"The teller complied with the demands and gave the suspect an undetermined amount of U.S. currency," the sergeant said. "The suspect then walked out the south side doors to Ramona Avenue and then eastbound on Seventh Street, where he was last seen."

The bandit was described as a white man between 50 and 60 years old, about 5-foot-8 and around 200 pounds. He had a gray goatee and was wearing sunglasses, a dark-colored cap, a blue and white checkered jacket and black
pants with a white stripe on each side.

Anyone with information about his identity or whereabouts was urged to call Corona police.
