Carmel Valley bank robbed

A gun-toting thief in a surgical mask robbed a Carmel Valley bank .

The bandit, who appeared to be in his late 40s, handed a demand note to a teller at the Bank of America branch in the 11100 block of East Ocean Air Drive shortly before 11 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The employee, who saw a pistol tucked in the robber’s waistband, handed over an undetermined amount of cash, which the man put into several white envelopes before fleeing the area to the east on foot, SDPD Officer Brad Ruff said.

Witnesses said the thief was white, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and had curly black hair going gray at the temples. He was carrying a briefcase and wearing khaki pants, a short black jacket, sunglasses and a black baseball cap with a gray or white letter on the front, according to Ruff.
