Bank robber with sunglasses strikes twice, say Sacramento police

SACRAMENTO, CA - Sacramento police hope a bank robber's disguise of wearing sunglasses won't stop someone from recognizing him.

Sacramento Police Department Sgt. Norm Leong says robbery detectives think the same man has struck area banks twice since Dec. 10 and also believe they have a bank surveilliance camera image of him as he waited in line at a third bank. The man left as he reached the front of the line without going up to a teller in that case.

Leong said the robber's first hit was at a bank near Folsom Boulevard and 64th Street on Dec. 10 at 10:47 a.m.. The man went into the bank, demanded and received money from a teller, and then left on foot.

It was Dec. 21 at 9:55 a.m. when the man entered a bank near West El Camino Avenue and Truxel Road, waited in line and then left.

But later that day at 4:38 p.m, the robber went into a bank near Folsom Boulevard and Watt Avenue, ordered a teller to hand over what was in the cash drawer and then left.

No weapon was seen. No one was hurt.

Bank camera photos and witness descriptions have the robber as a black man, in his 30s, 5 feet 7 inches tall, and weighing 180 pounds. He always wears sunglasses.
