Bandit robs Carlsbad bank

A thief who may have been carrying a pistol tucked in his pants robbed a North County bank Friday.

The bandit handed a demand note to a teller at the Citibank branch office on Marron Road in Carlsbad about 9:45 a.m., Sgt. Kevin Lehan said. The clerk complied, and the robber fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The thief left the area on foot, but was later seen getting into a dark-colored full-size pickup truck with off-road tires and a lifted suspension. Witnesses described him as 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 pounds, with short black hair and wearing blue jeans, a black T-shirt and sunglasses.

“Witnesses reported seeing what appeared to be a handgun tucked in the (robber’s) waistband,” the sergeant said.
