Man robs bank with Chihuahua puppy


The Tucson Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a bank robbery suspect.

On March 14, 2014, at approximately 10:40 A.M., officers from Operations Division East responded to the report of a bank robbery that had just occurred at the Chase Bank, located inside of the Fry’s Grocery Store at 9401 East 22nd Street. Upon arrival officers confirmed that the suspect had fled the store and that no one was hurt during the incident.

Detectives from the Robbery Unit responded to continue the investigation. They determined that the suspect approached one of the bank tellers and set a Fry’s Grocery basket on the counter. The basket contained a small white Chihuahua puppy. The suspect then demanded money from both tellers at the counter. He was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled westbound from the store on foot with his dog. No weapon was seen or mentioned.

The suspect is described as a White or Hispanic male, approximately 35 years of age, 5’10” tall and 180 pounds.

Anyone with information is urged to contact 911 or 88- CRIME.
