An unknown man robbed a Wells Fargo bank branch in Carmel Valley Thursday afternoon, officials confirmed.
The robbery occurred at the Wells Fargo located at 3445 Del Mar Heights Rd. at around 3:35 p.m. An unknown man walked into the bank and demanded cash from several tellers.
After collecting an undisclosed amount of money the suspect fled on foot, running toward an apartment complex across the street from the Highlands Center. No one was injured in the heist.
Investigators say the suspect is described as a white male between 5-foot-9 and 6-feet tall. He was wearing a white baseball cap with some sort of logo on it, a dark shirt with print on the front, blue jeans and black Vans shoes. He's pictured above and in the photo gallery to the left.
This marks the fifth Wells Fargo bank robbery reported in San Diego since Dec. 18.
It is unknown if these robberies are in any way related, but here’s a look at the other Wells Fargo robberies in recent weeks:
Police arrested suspect James McWatters in connection with the Dec. 31 Pacific Beach bank robbery earlier this week. He was booked into jail Wednesday on robbery charges.
Again, the FBI has not linked these Wells Fargo robberies in any way and most of the suspects are still outstanding. For surveillance photos of these Wells Fargo robbery suspects and other local bank bandits, click here.
