    Investigators say a bank-robbing suspect gave himself away in part when he spoke.

    The FBI released a series of photos and some videotape on Thursday of a bank robbery that took place last Friday at the Inland Federal Credit Union in the 550 block of Broadway in El Cajon. According to investigators, the suspect walked toward the bank at about 9:30 a.m. and confronted a bank employee, with the robber telling the worker he had a weapon. The robber then forced his way into the vault area of the bank with the worker in tow.

    A bank employee who gave the robber some cash was told to walk the robber out. The suspect was last seen driving away in a white Saturn SUV.

    "It is unusual, we haven't seen this disguise used in any bank robberies in San Diego,"said F.B.I. spokesman Darrell Foxworth.

    The FBI said the suspect is a white man in his mid-50s who is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weight 180 pounds. He was wearing a blond wig, black blazer and sunglasses, jeans, a purple or blue top, and black boots. He was carrying a brown cloth bag during the robbery.

    Anybody with information is being urged to call the police or FBI.
