An east Redding bank was robbed Tuesday afternoon. Police were called at 5:49 to the Wells Fargo on East Cypress Avenue. A man had showed a note to a teller demanding money. An undisclosed amount of cash was given to him and he fled on foot. He was last seen going west. A search of the area with the help of a K9 and a CHP helicopter was unsuccessful. The robber is described as a white man between the ages of 20 and 40 about 5’9″ and thin with brown hair, possibly in a ponytail, and an unshaven face. He was wearing a dark ballcap, a red plaid shirt with a white t-shirt underneath and dark shorts down to his knees.
