It's usually rather ho-hum when authorities send a notice about seeking a bank robber, notices that are often accompanied by a surveillance photo or two of the baddie in action.
But with the latest release from the Anaheim Police Department came five different shots of a guy who robbed a Bank of America on Euclid Street on Monday.
One even shows him getting on a getaway bike.
Why so many?
Perhaps it's what he left behind … and the gray hairs it produced.
The robbery of the BofA branch at 1818 S. Euclid St. happened about 5 p.m. Monday, when the man informed a teller he had a bomb and demanded money, according to Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn, the department spokesman.
He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and hopped onto a blue bicycle to get away.
But he left behind a device that bank employees thought was a bomb, forcing the evacuation of the building. When officers arrived, they also evacuated neighboring businesses as a precaution. The bomb squad determined the realistic-looking device was a hoax and the all clear was given at 7:45 p.m., according to Dunn.
The robber is described as Latino or Middle Eastern, in his mid-30s, 5-foot-9, 160-170 pounds and with a pockmarked face.
He was last seen in a black hat, dark T-shirt and dark shorts.
Anyone with information about his identity or whereabouts is asked to call Orange County Crimestoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS or to send a text message to 24637. All tips may be made anonymously.
