Police: Lone bandit robs Fairfield bank

By From page A4 | April 11, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A lone robber held up the Chase Bank on Business Center Drive in the Green Valley Crossing shopping center shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday.

The robber gave a note to a teller that said he had a gun. The robber left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and was seen driving off in an old, green Chevy Silverado pickup truck. Witnesses were not able to get the truck’s license plate number, police reported.

A bank employee told police the robber had not worn gloves and had touched the counter during the robbery, prompting police to take swabs of the countertop that will be tested for a possible DNA match.

Witnesses described the robber as a skinny Asian man in his 20s, approx. 6 feet tall wearing a white button-down shirt with a white hat and dark glasses.
