FBI needs help in solving year-old Pocket-Greenhaven bank robbery

The FBI is asking for help on a bank robbery investigation gone cold.

The US Bank, 950 Florin Road, was held up Dec. 23, 2010. The bank robber entered the Pocket-Greenhaven bank and handed a note to a teller. The note was written on the back of a cable television envelope in orange highlighter.

It read: "Put money In BAG I got A BOMB And I will use it."

The robber took cash and then he fled. He was described as a 35-45 year-old black man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, 260 pounds.

He was wearing a large straw hat, blue jeans, dark tennis shoes with white bottoms and a dark-colored down jacket with a tan diamond-shaped emblem sewn near the back of the collar.

The FBI on Wednesday released a copy of the demand note and re-released a picture of the man. Anyone with information, may contact the FBI at (916) 481-9110 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357.
