Bank Bandit Uses Fake Facial Hair as Disguise: FBI

A man using what looks like a fake mustache and beard as a disguise is wanted in the robbery of a San Diego credit union, officials said Friday.

The man walked into the Mission Federal Credit Union on West Washington just before 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

He was wearing black sunglasses, a San Diego Chargers hat, a long-sleeved black shirt with blue jeans. Most notably, he also had fake facial hair, according to FBI investigators.

The suspect demanded money from several tellers.

Once he got some cash from one teller he walked out of the bank heading southbound toward University Avenue.

Officials describe the man as approximately 5-feet, 6-inches and 165 to 170 pounds.
