Robber hits Encinitas bank, escapes with cash
A robber used a demand note to get cash from an Encinitas bank on Saturday, Oct. 6, a sheriff’s official said.
The robber, described as a white man in his 40s, wearing jeans and a T-shirt, escaped before deputies got there.
He walked into Wells Fargo bank in a strip mall on North El Camino Real, near Via Montano, about 3:10 p.m. and handed a demand note to a teller, sheriff’s Lt. Karla Menzies said.
The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the robber left. No weapons were seen, Menzies said.
