The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $5,000 reward for help finding three armed robbers who held up an Escondido bank last May.
At about 9:50 a.m. May 23, three gunmen wearing masks and hoods entered the San Diego County Credit Union on the 1800 block of S. Center City Parkway in Escondido and ordered employees to get on the ground. The robbers gained access to the credit union’s vault, filling a trash can with cash and then fleeing in a stolen 1980s Chevrolet Suburban that they had backed up to the bank’s entrance.
The FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force is asking for the public’s help in finding the suspects, and is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading the their arrest and conviction.
The suspects were all wearing hooded sweatshirts, dark pants, masks and gloves. The FBI warns that they should be considered armed and dangerous.
