Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives are on the lookout for an unidentified man who allegedly robbed the Rabobank in Vandenberg Village at around 3 p.m. this afternoon.

According to Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Drew Sugars in a press release, dispatchers received a report that a man walked into the bank on the 3700 block of Constellation Road, took out a gun, and demanded money from a teller. The suspect then reportedly left the building with an unknown amount of cash and was last seen on what appeared to be a mountain bike.

Witnesses said the suspect was wearing a blue, long-sleeved T-shirt, black pants, black shoes, a gold chain necklace, red, gray, and black fluffy gloves, an open-faced motorcycle helmet with blue and black stripes, and goggles with “Scott” on the side. The suspect also had a black backpack in his possession.
