Fake-Bearded Bank Robber Sought In Cupertino Heist

CUPERTINO (CBS SF) – Santa Clara County sheriff’s detectives released several surveillance photos of a man suspected of robbing a U.S. Bank in Cupertino on Wednesday.

The robbery occurred around 10:40 a.m. at U.S. Bank located at 19630 Stevens Creek Blvd.

An unidentified man entered the bank and presented a note to the teller stating that he was armed and demanding money from the top and bottom drawers, according to the sheriff’s office.

The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash that he threw inside a blue plastic bag and then left the bank. He remains at-large, according to the sheriff’s office.

The teller did not report seeing any weapons.

Detectives said the suspect appears to be the same person involved in recent bank robberies in South San Francisco and Fremont, according to the sheriff’s office.

The suspect is an Eastern Indian or white man, standing at about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds. He was wearing dark glasses and a fake glued-on beard. He spoke English without an accent, according to the sheriff’s office.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Quinonez or Sgt. Poso at (408) 808-4500.

      By your name I can figure that you don’t have or never learned to save money or let alone use and mantain a decent bank account.
      You are an idiot.

        Ted, your comment has no basis, where do you get off making such a remark? People have a right to express their feelings without being attacked and belittled by some imbicle that has their panties all in a bunch just because they don’t agree. This is the United States of America and if you are an American and believe in the Constitution, then have respect for other peoples beliefs and ideas, even if you don’t agree.

        Hi Ted,
        You don’t know anything about me and you are already making assumptions , therefore you are the idiot.
        P.S. I still hope he gets away.

    Ted’s a typical liberal, if he doesn’t like or agree with another persons point of view, he resorts to name calling, I guess he’s never read the Constitution of the United States.!
