A suspected serial bank robber struck a Chase branch in Monrovia Thursday afternoon, making off with an undisclosed amount of cash after he handed a bank teller a note demanding money.
The robbery happened at the Chase branch in the 600 block of West Huntington Drive at about 1 p.m., Monrovia Police Lt. Michael Lee said.
"The suspect came in, pushed a note to the teller, took the money and walked out the door," Lee said.
The suspect, described as a male black in his late 20s or early 30s driving a silver sedan, is believed to have robbed other banks in the past, Lee said. The investigation is being turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which gets involved in all bank robberies, Lee said.
Lee said he didn't believe any other customers were present at the bank at the time the robbery occurred. The bank's security cameras captured images of the suspect, Lee said.
