The Tucson Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in an attempted bank robbery yesterday.

About 9:15 a.m., the man handed a note demanding money to a teller at the Wells Fargo Bank branch at 555 N. Wilmot Road, said Officer Kathy Wendling, a police spokeswoman.

He fled without getting the cash, she said.

The man was described as 6 feet tall, about 300 pounds, with a goatee. He was wearing a tan baseball hat, sunglasses, a tan shirt and blue jeans, Wendling said.

Police believe he is associated with a silver car, she said.

No weapon was used or implied during the incident, Wendling said.

The man may have committed robberies Aug. 26 at Wells Fargo, 5310 E. Grant Road, and Sept. 19 at Bank One, 2465 N. Campbell Ave., she said.

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to dial 911 or 88-CRIME.

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
