The man who robbed the Chase Bank on Laurel Street in San Carlos yesterday afternoon may be connected to a robbery nearly two years ago at the same location, police said.
At approximately 1:50 p.m., deputies with the San Carlos Bureau of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office were called to the bank at 845 Laurel St. on the report of a man who just robbed the bank with a demand note. He also said he had a gun, according to police.
The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money and he fled out the front door onto Laurel Street, according to police.
He is described as white, in his 30s, approximately 6 feet tall and thin. He was wearing a light baseball hat, sunglasses and a dark jacket, according to police.
Police are reviewing surveillance video and believe the suspect is described similarly to the person who robbed this same bank Jan. 5, 2012.
