Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a McKinleyville business last evening after receiving a report of a robbery. Shortly before 4:30 p.m. an employee at the Coast Central Credit Union on Central Avenue in McKinleyville reported that a man had robbed the business and fled. Deputies arrived and learned that the suspect had given a note to a teller in which he claimed to have a weapon and also demanded that she give him her money. The suspect did not display a weapon nor did he speak during the incident. Upon receiving the money, the suspect left the bank immediately.
The suspect is described as a white male adult, in his 40’s. He is approximately 5’5” tall and of medium weight and build. He was last seen wearing a black watch cap, under which witnesses could see short, graying hair. He was wearing a black rain jacket that may have something blue in color on it. Additionally, he was wearing black or dark blue pants, white tennis shoes, glasses and may have facial hair.
Nobody was injured during the incident.
