The Union Bank at 5420 Carpinteria Avenue was robbed today at 1:50 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office reported. The suspect, a heavyset white man in his late fifties, about 6’ tall and 250 pounds, handed the teller a note and walked out the door with cash. A search helicopter and K-9 team looked for the man in vain; he was last seen walking northbound. Deputies suspect the same person robbed Carp’s Montecito Bank & Trust in April. The Sheriff’s Office requests the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Contact Criminal Investigations at (805) 681-4150.
