The suspect did not use a weapon during the crime
PASO ROBLES — On Thursday, Feb. 10, at approximately 12:31 pm, the Paso Robles Police Department (PRPD) received a 911 call from US Bank, 189 Niblick Rd. (inside Albertson’s) that a robbery had just occurred.
Employees of the bank advised a White adult male, wearing a black sweatshirt and a black face mask, handed one of the tellers a note demanding money. The employee complied with the suspect and handed over an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect fled out of the bank and ran west toward the Salinas Riverbed area.
Responding police units quickly set up a perimeter and began to search for involved suspects. The Paso Robles Police K9 Unit (K9 Renzo) was deployed to track the suspect’s path.
