Police seek suspect in South Lake Tahoe Wells Fargo robbery

SLT suspect.pngSouth Lake Tahoe police are looking for a man who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank inside a Raley's store this morning.

About 11:25 a.m., a man walked up to the bank teller inside the Raley's at 4010 Lake Tahoe Blvd. and demanded cash, according to a Police Department news release. He didn't claim to have a weapon and none was seen during the robbery, police said.

The man took an undisclosed amount of cash, then walked away from the bank and out of Raley's. He was last seen walking east from the shopping center toward the area of Heavenly Village Way and Bellamy Court.

The suspect (pictured) was described as white, in his late 50s or early 60s, about 6 feet tall, skinny, and wearing a tan "touring" type hat, tan jacket, khaki pants and prescription glasses.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call Detective Pierre Herring at the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, (530) 542-6100, or, to remain anonymous, call South Lake Tahoe Secret Witness at (530) 541-6800.
