On Aug. 7 at approximately 2:30 p.m., officers from Operations Division East responded to the Wells Fargo Bank located inside the Safeway at 8740 East Broadway after an employee called 911 to report that a robbery had just occurred. Upon arrival, the officers confirmed that the suspect had left prior to their arrival and that no one inside the bank was injured.
Detectives from the Robbery Unit responded to continue the investigation. They learned that the suspect entered the bank and presented a note to the teller demanding money and threatening harm. After he was given an undisclosed amount of money, he left the bank and was last seen southbound on foot from the Safeway. After interviewing witnesses and reviewing the security video from the bank, detectives believe that the suspect involved in this incident is the same person suspected in four other Tucson area bank robberies.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, 5 feet, 05 inches to 5 feet, 07 inches tall, medium build, wearing white collared shirt with a black shirt underneath, black jeans and a black fedora.
A surveillance photograph from the Wells Fargo Bank is included below. Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of this suspect is encouraged to call 911 or 88- CRIME.
