A man carrying a black lunch box who claimed to be armed with a gun robbed a Wells Fargo bank in San Carlos Monday, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
The man entered the bank on 632 Laurel St. around 2:52 p.m. and approached a teller demanding money, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
The teller was able to trigger the bank’s silent alarm while gathering $3,000 to give the man. The man was caught on camera and is described as a chubby black man in his mid 30s about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall weighing around 220 to 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue button-down collared shirt with white pinstripes, khaki pants, a black hat and white gardening type gloves, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
