January 15, 2012 (Scripps Ranch) -- The FBI and San Diego Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance to identify the man who committed a takeover robbery of the California Coast Credit Union, 9835 Mira Mesa Boulevard, in Scripps Ranch this morning at 10:30 a.m. 


After walking up to an open teller window inside the bank, the robber pointed a gun towards the ceiling and announced he was there to rob the credit union. He demanded money from three tellers, who all handed over cash.  The bank robber left with the money and was last seen entering a newer model charcoal grey Toyota Corolla.  The vehicle did not have any license plates displayed and the driver was believed to be a male.  The vehicle was last seen traveling northbound on I-15 from Mira Mesa Boulevard.

The robber was described as white, about 40 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall.  He wore a black hooded puffy jacket, tan pants, and white tennis shoes. He was unshaven and may have had a mustache, his hair may have been grey.  The weapon was a black handgun. 
Anyone with information concerning this robbery is asked to contact the FBI at telephone number (858) 565-1255, San Diego Police Department Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299 or CrimeStoppers at (888) 580-8477.   This robber should be considered armed and dangerous, said Special Agent Darrell Foxworth with the FBI in San Diego.
