This wasn’t just any routine bank robbery for some very scared customers expecting a quiet visit to a Sierra Madre bank.
In addition to pepper-spraying several people at the bank, the masked armed robber was mysteriously dressed all in white except for a black hat.
Now the FBI is launching an all-out search for the robber and agents want your help if you know anything about the brazen attack.
The robber, who carried a handgun and wore a white cotton mask with openings at the eyes, entered the Bank of the West branch at 100 Sierra Madre Blvd. about 1 p.m. Wednesday and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to police and the FBI.
Whether he is connected to other bank robberies will be investigated, according to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
