Man sought in armed robbery of Cameron Park bank

El Dorado County sheriff's deputies are looking for a man who robbed the Umpqua Bank in Cameron Park this morning.

No one in the bank at 4011 Plaza Goldorado was injured during the robbery, which occurred at 9:43 a.m..

Bank employees told sheriff's deputies that the man approached the merchant teller with a small sign that had writing on it. The man demanded money and when the teller said there was no more, he pulled a handgun and began waving it around, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Adjacent tellers gave the man money to meet his demands, and he then left the bank on foot.

The suspect is described as white, possibly in his 50s, 6 feet tall with a slender build, and clean shaven with pocked skin. He was wearing a dark-colored jacket, pants and a dark-colored baseball cap with a star on the front. He also wore sunglasses during the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office at (530) 621-6600.
