Around 5:18 p.m. on Aug. 12, the Oro Valley Police Department was dispatched to a robbery at the Wells Fargo bank located at the intersection of Oracle and First Avenue.

A tall African-American male sporting a black long sleeve sweatshirt with a Bob Marley logo and dark gloves walked in to the bank with a fake beard disguise and demanded that the teller hand over the money.

The man did not display a weapon but implied that he had one, according to Oro Valley Police Department spokesperson Kara Riley.

After taking an undisclosed amount of money, he then fled in a southwestern direction on foot towards the nearby Target store.

It is believed the man was in the area for quite sometime prior to the bank robbery.

The man is described as:

• African-American Male

• Height between 6' 02"-6'04"

• Slender build,

• Wearing a black long sleeve sweatshirt with a Bob Marley logo, dark gloves, and a tan floppy hat.

If you have any information on this incident you are asked to call 911, 88-crime or 520-229-4900.
