Police Search for Armed Suspect in San Marino ATM Robber
Police are searching for an armed suspect who allegedly robbed a victim at an ATM machine in San Marino, California on Tuesday morning.
According to San Marino Police, the robbery happened at a Chase Bank located at 2270 Huntington Drive around 8:21 a.m. As the victim was withdrawing cash from the ATM, a male suspect approached him from behind and pointed a handgun at him. The suspect demanded the victim to hand over the cash and his wallet. The victim complied and the suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black shoes, and a black mask. He was last seen running southbound on Huntington Drive.
No one was injured during the robbery and no shots were fired. Police are reviewing the surveillance footage from the bank and nearby businesses to identify the suspect. Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect is urged to contact the San Marino Police Department at (626) 300-0720.
This is not the only armed robbery at a Chase Bank in the area recently. On Monday, three suspects armed with guns held employees and customers at gunpoint at a Chase Bank in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Monterey County. The suspects escaped with an unknown amount of cash and fired shots at the responding officers. No one was injured in that incident and the suspects are still at large.
The FBI and the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the Carmel-by-the-Sea robbery and are looking for any possible connection to the San Marino robbery or other similar crimes in the region.
