Bank Robbery Suspect Photo Released

Police are searching for this man in connection with a gunpoint heist earlier this month.

Watsonville police released a surveillance photo Friday of a man suspected of robbing an East Lake Avenue bank at gunpoint last week.

No further updates about the case were released Friday.

The heist happened at Citibank about 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 1. The robber wore a Halloween-style mask when he was in the bank, but police say this image of him was captured outside the building before he put on the mask and committed the robbery.

The robber pointed a gun at the four employees inside the bank and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. He ran from the bank to Tuttle Avenue, where he got into a green Honda sedan driven by another man.

Sgt. Saul Gonzalez said the robber likely isn't from Watsonville. Also, he may have altered his appearance to look more dishelved than he normaly would.

Detectives ask that anyone with information about the latest heist call the Investigations Bureau at 768-3350 or the Crime Tip Line at 768-3544.

so wait, he went in with a mask to rob the bank, was able to actually leave the bank, but when he was outside he took the mask off?????????? so not only do we need to make sure he's aprehended because he robbed the bank at gunpoint but also because he's a complete and utter IDIOT! note to would-be-bank robbers, YOU WILL GET CAUGHT! it's a BANK, not a lemonade stand you dorks!!! anyway, it won't be long before he's caught, i'm sure someone will recognize his face, Watsonville is a small town and a tight-knit community.

Just talked to a detective about that ... this was BEFORE he put the mask on and went in the bank. But yeah, dumb. You're right, Lucero.
