Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing a bank inside a Citrus Heights grocery store last week.
The suspect allegedly walked into a Raley's Supermarket at 7847 Lichen Dr. around 3:45 p.m. on May 22 and handed the teller at the Wells Fargo bank a note demanding money. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, at which point the man fled on foot, according to a Citrus Heights Police Department media release distributed Tuesday.
Security cameras identified the suspect as a thin white man in his late 20s, 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-3, with dark hair, a mustache and a goatee. He was wearing a buttoned-up short-sleeved black shirt with white pinstripes, dark sunglasses and a black baseball cap with red-and-white lettering.
Law enforcement officials believe the suspect has robbed other banks in Sacramento and Placer counties. He didn't threaten to have a weapon during last week's robbery, police said, and none was observed in person or in the recording.
