SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

The suspect entered the Umpqua Bank on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at about 2:32 PM and contacted one of the bank tellers. The suspect handed the teller a note claiming that he had placed a bomb at the Los Molinos High School. The suspect then demanded money from the teller and threatened that if they did not cooperate, he would detonate the bomb. The suspect also made a hand motion to the teller indicating he had a gun in his waistband. No weapon was seen by the teller or bank staff. The teller complied by handing the suspect an undisclosed amount of currency. The suspect left the bank after placing the currency into his pocket.  The suspect left the bank through the front door and walked north past the Post Office.  No vehicle was seen, and the whereabouts or activities of the suspect are not known after he passed the post office.

Los Molinos High School was notified and subsequently evacuated as a precaution. The school was searched by sheriff’s personnel and no destructive device was located.

Below are two photos of the suspect.  If you have seen, know, or have any information concerning the suspect or robbery, please contact Detective Rob Brinton at the Tehama County Sheriff’s at 530 529-7920.
