Tracy Police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed the Bank of Stockton, 1175 N. Tracy Blvd., Friday and took an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to Detective Miguel Contreras, a man entered the bank around 2:48 p.m. through the west door and walked up to a teller. He said the man then handed the teller a note and demanded money.

Although the robber never showed a weapon, he said the robber did claim to have one.

“He was given an undisclosed amount of cash, and he fled on foot out of the west side door,” Contreras said.

The robber was described as a white man, 25-30 years old, 160 pounds, 5-feet-9, wearing a black long sleeve shirt, black running pants, black ball cap and sunglasses.

The bank was occupied by customers and bank employees, but none of them were standing in line to see a teller at the time of the robbery, police said, and no injuries were reported.

The inside of the bank was closed to the public after the incident, but the drive-thru windows remained open during the police investigation.

Police are reviewing the surveillance tapes of the bank and surrounding businesses in an attempt to identify the robber.

Anyone with information about the robbery is being asked to contact Detective Contreras at 831-6618.
