Written by 

A man entered the Bank of America in McKinleyville this morning (Thurs., June 27, 2013 ) and reportedly waved a black revolver at tellers and customers announcing that it was a bank robbery. The suspect then, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office press release, jumped over the counter and began loading money into a bag. The suspect (see photo above) fled westbound on Hiller Avenue, dropping money as he ran, and drove away in a white Nissan Pathfinder or Xterra type vehicle with tinted rear windows driven by a second suspect. The vehicle was last seen westbound on Hiller Avenue.

The suspect is described as a Black Male Adult, 5-9 to 5-10" tall, around 30 years of age, wearing black tennis shoes with thin white strips on the arches, grey sweat pants, black sweat shirt, red under shirt, grey cotton style gloves, aviator style sunglasses, white bandana across face and a short cropped mustache to lip line. The HCSO press release appears below.
