Murrieta police have released surveillance photos of the suspect in a bank robbery.

The robbery happened at 2:55 p.m. Monday at Pacific Western Bank, 41381 Kalmia St., just west of Interstate 15 in Murrieta.

A white or light-skinned Hispanic man in his mid-30s wearing a dark-colored beanie and dark sunglasses allegedly “presented the teller with a demand note and verbally told the teller to give him money,” according to Murrieta police.

“The teller complied with the suspect’s demand and the suspect was last seen running toward Village Walk Place.”

Police said no one was injured in the incident.

The suspect has short black or brown hair, is approximately 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighs between 170 and 190 pounds. He was wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt with an orange undershirt and light-colored pants with a blue stripe down the side of the pant legs.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect was encouraged to call Detective Nelson at 951-461‐6383.

Just my opinion December 12, 2013 at 08:34 PM
I certainly hope this man is captured, but my suggestion to this and every other bank in Murrieta, is to get some higher resolution cameras (HD) and put more of them in and around your banks. It is ridiculous in this day and age to have kids on bikes with GoPro cameras getting quality better pictures than the PD is posting from the bank's camera system. It's absurd to have blurry low resolution cameras now a days. Invest in better cameras so the public can identify these creeps.
