SAN MARCOS, Calif. (KGTV) — FBI investigators are asking the public for help finding the suspect who robbed a Chase Bank location in San Marcos on Wednesday.

The FBI and San Diego Sheriff's Department say the suspect entered the Chase Bank at 348 South Twin Oaks Valley Road at about 11:45 a.m. and waited in line. He approached the counter and produced a handwritten note that said, "Give me all your 50's and 100's and give me the note back."

The teller gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect fled the scene on foot.

Investigators described the suspect as a white male, between 25 and 30 years old, standing 5' 11", and with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt, black pants, black plastic sunglasses, and a colorful tube-style mask pulled over his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Diego FBI at 858-320-1800 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
