El Dorado Sheriff's Deputies Seek Man in Pollock Pines Bank Robbery

Posted: Updated:

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office says it needs your help finding a man in connection with a U.S. Bank robbery inside a Safeway grocery store in Pollock Pines on Tuesday night.

Deputies say the man showed a weapon and demanded money, and then ran away.

They say he disguised himself with glued-on facial hair, sunglasses, and a red bandana over his head, which covered what is believed to be a long-haired wig.

He was last seen wearing a bright yellow jacket, tan cargo pants, and dark shoes - and possibly getting inside an early to mid-2000's model white Chevy Tahoe Z71, behind the business on or along Highway 50. 

The unidentified man may also be wanted in connection to the string of heists in Yolo, Placer, Sutter, and Sacramento counties.

If you have any information, Detective Jon Densmore at (530) 642-4718 or you can email him at densmorj@edso.org.

    A recent study shows the rate of Americans who smoke has fallen to about 14 percent, nationally.  In Washoe County, that number sits at about 10 percent of adults. While those numbers are an improvement, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health is looking to lower them, even more. The Nevada Tobacco Quitline is a free and convenient way to help smokers who want to quit--do just that.
