Police investigate bank robbery in Burbank

Authorities are searching for a man who they say robbed a Comerica bank on North San Fernando Boulevard on Monday at 2:59 p.m. He made off with an undisclosed amount of money, and is considered armed and dangerous.

The suspect, described as possibly Latino, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 200 pounds with a medium build, entered the bank branch and demanded money with a handwritten note, said Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI.


No weapon was seen, but the man’s note indicated he had a gun and the FBI considers him armed and dangerous, Eimiller said.

The man was not linked to any other robberies as of Monday afternoon.


The man, who was wearing a black Raiders sweatshirt with a hood and a black New York Yankees baseball cap, left the bank at 801 N. San Fernando Blvd. in an unknown direction, said Burbank police Sgt. Robert Quesada.

Bank closed temporarily Monday afternoon as investigators interviewed employees. Bank officials declined to comment.
