CARLSBAD — On Nov. 23 at 1:01 p.m., Carlsbad Police responded to a hold-up alarm at the Bank of America at 7700 El Camino Real on the corner of El Camino real and La Costa Avenue.
Upon arrival, officers learned that three, possibly four suspects had entered the bank wearing black hoodie-type sweatshirts and gloves. The suspects had jumped the counter and taken money from teller drawers.
Once they had committed the robbery, the suspects had fled the bank parking lot in a burgundy
Chevrolet Tahoe. They drove the Tahoe through the lot and abandoned it in the south end, moving to a white, possibly Dodge, van and fleeing the area.
No injuries were reported and one of the witnesses identified that possibly one of the suspects had been carrying a screwdriver or pry-bar. No other weapons or tools were seen.
The burgundy Tahoe has been recovered and is possibly a stolen vehicle.
The investigation is continuing through the Carlsbad Police Department and the North County
Office of the F.B.I.
