SEAL BEACH – – A Main Street Bank of America branch was robbed Monday afternoon by a man who police say may be connected with an earlier bank robbery in Yorba Linda.
A thin man in a blue button-down shirt walked up to a teller about 1:23 p.m. Monday, passed the teller a note and walked away with an undisclosed amount of cash, Seal Beach police spokesman Sergeant Ron LaVelle said.
LaVelle said the demand note said “something to the effect of ‘I need 50s and 20s,’” but he didn’t have specifics.
No one was injured in the robbery, and the man was last seen walking south on Main Street, LaVelle said.
Police described the man as Caucasian, between 48 and 50 years old and 5’9”.
Police haven’t identified the suspect from surveillance video but his appearance suggests he may have been involved in the robbery of a Yorba Linda bank about 10 days ago, LaVelle said.
The department is asking anyone with information to contact Det. Gary Krogman at 562-799-4100, ext. 1108. Wells Fargo is offering a reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest, according to the release.
