Bank of America offers $20,000 for information about San Diego robbery


Bank of America has taken the unusual step of offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two men who robbed one of its branches in San Diego.

The company made the offer because of the aggressiveness of the robbers and the large amount of money taken, the FBI said.

The two stormed into a Bank of America branch in the Tierrasanta neighborhood Tuesday morning, loudly demanding that customers and employees get on the floor. One then vaulted the counter and robbed individual tellers. The two said they had guns, but none were seen.

The two were described as black men of medium height, in their 20s, both wearing ski masks. One was also wearing a New York Yankees cap. Tipsters are asked to call the FBI at (858) 565-1255.
