July Kicks Off With A Bank Robbery

by The Editors on July 3, 2010

The people in dark masks, hooded sweatshirts “claimed to be armed” while robbing the Carlsbad Citi bank at 1810 Marron Rd. on Thursday, July 1, 2010, according to a story in The Coast News.

Carlsbad Police responded to the scene and located a vehicle, abandoned with the motor still running, behind the Marshall’s Store, which is located in the same shopping center. It was discovered that this vehicle had been reported as stolen from the Los Angeles area. The surrounding area was searched by a police K-9 and other officers, however the suspects were not located.

We haven’t had a bank robbery since March and it was at the same bank. In fact, the Citibank on Marron Rd has been robbed at least three times in the past three years. Seems to be a favorite with the bad guys.

Armed Man Robs Carlsbad Citibank

by The Editors on March 12, 2010

At 9:50 AM today (March 12, 2010) a Latino about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 150 to 160 pounds handed a demand note to a teller at the Citibank near the intersection of Marron Road at Jefferson St. and robbed the place, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Witnesses reported seeing a handgun tucked into the waistband of his jeans. . . The robber was seen getting into a dark-colored, full-sized, lifted truck with off-road tires. Police searched the area but were unable to find the vehicle.

We believe this to be the first reported bank robbery of the new year. He probably needed to buy new monster truck tires. Those things are expensive.

Carlsbad Citibank Robbed With Note

by The Editors on September 18, 2007

Yesterday (September 17) at 12:50 PM the Citibank at 1810 Marron Road was robbed by a young man with a note “demanding money,” according to a story in the North County Times. Apparently, it’s that easy.

The suspect, who is believed to be in his twenties, was seen leaving the area in a white Toyota truck, police said. He was wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap. A second suspect was seen in the Toyota but police didn’t have many details about his appearance, officers said.

That “hat and glasses” disguise seems extremely popular. This is the fourth Carlsbad bank robbery we’ve linked to since May.
