The U.S. Bank located on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach was robbed at around 3:45 p.m. on Friday, February 8.

According to witnesses, a white man in his 40s with a medium build and goatee, wearing white rubber gloves and a gray hoodie sweatshirt, strolled past the waiting line and gave the teller a demand note for money. No weapon was brandished, and the thief left with an undisclosed amount of money in a blue bank bag.

Just outside the front door of the bank was a small group of Girl Scouts and their mothers on their first day selling Girl Scout cookies. Apparently, the robber nonchalantly walked past them both going in and coming out.
