    Surveillance images show the suspect at Friday's bank robbery.

    A Wells Fargo in Miramar Ranch North was robbed Friday morning, police said. 

    A man in his late 30s walked into the bank in the 12000 block of Scripps Summit Drive at about 10 a.m. Friday and demanded money, according to the San Diego Police Department.

    He fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a gray four-door car driven by an unknown person. The vehicle had tinted windows.

    Shortly after, police pulled over a gray or silver Ford Focus nearby. The police activity slowed traffic on the SR-163 and I-15 intersection. 

    Police said the traffic stop may or may not have been related to the bank robbery. 

    The suspect is described as a man in his late 30s, about 6-feet-tall and 180 to 200 pounds with a light beard and mustache. 

    He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, dark jacket, dark beanie cap, gloves, dark oval shaped sunglasses and gray pants.

    Ed. Note: An earlier version of this article stated that one person was taken into custody. The suspect is still at large though.
