Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding a man detectives suspect robbed a Northwest Side bank this week and have released a bank surveillance photograph of the suspect.

No one was injured when the Wells Fargo Bank at 6270 N. Oracle Road, near West Orange Grove Road, was held up at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, said Deputy Steve Easton, a sheriff’s spokesman.

A man walked into the bank, pulled a pistol on a teller, demanded cash and walked out with an undisclosed amount of money. No shots were fired during the heist, Easton said.

He described the man as 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with brown hair and a mustache. He was wearing a multicolored plaid short-sleeved shirt, light blue jeans and a blue University of Arizona baseball cap.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call Detective John Taylor at 547-6170 or the Pima County Attorney’s anonymous tipster line at 88-CRIME. The 88-Crime program offers rewards of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of robbery suspects.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
