Police seeking suspect in morning midtown bank robbery

TUCSON - Police are looking for a suspect in a bank robbery that occurred Friday morning at a midtown Wells Fargo.

At about 10:53 a.m. this morning, Tucson Police Department officers were dispatched to the Wells Fargo at 2825 N. Campbell Ave. Officers arrived within three minutes of their dispatch call, but the suspect was no longer in the bank.

Detectives determined that a man entered the bank, approached the counter, and verbally threatened the teller, implying he had a weapon and demanding money, according to a news release from TPD. The suspect was given an undisclosed amount of money and then fled the bank.

He is described as a 23 to 27-year-old Hispanic or Native American man, 6' to 6'2" tall, 220 to 230 pounds, with brown hair and a "burly" build, police state. He was last seen wearing a blue-checkered long-sleeved button-up shirt with a white shirt underneath and a black or dark blue baseball hat with an unknown emblem.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 911 or 88-CRIME. Citizens can also send tips to TPD using a new iPhone and Android app called TipSoft, or by texting "CRIMES" (274637), beginning with the keyword "TucsonPD" and followed by the tip.
