Police continue search for Bank of West robber

Suspect flees with garbage bag filled with cash

Pleasanton police are continuing to search for a man who robbed a Bank of the West's branch in the Raley's shopping center Friday afternoon.

Bank employees said the suspect entered the bank with a garbage bag and demanded that the tellers hand over cash. No weapon was seen or simulated and no one was injured.

The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash before officers arrived, police said, and a search of the area was unsuccessful.

The suspect is described as a white man between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches tall who weighs about 160 pounds. He was seen wearing a black sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head and blue jeans.

Police are looking at surveillance camera tapes in an attempt to identify the robber. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Pleasanton police at (925) 931-5100.
