On May 4, 2023, at about 9:51 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a bank on the 12700 block of State Highway 96 in Hoopa for the report of a robbery.
According to bank employees, an unknown male suspect entered the bank and handed a bank teller a note indicating that he was in possession of a firearm and demanding money. The male fled the business with a large amount of cash and was observed being picked up by a red mustang. Deputies conducting follow up to this investigation located the mustang parked at a nearby residence on Tish Tang Road. The vehicle was unoccupied, and the suspect was not located.
The suspect remains outstanding at this time and is described as a light-skinned male, possibly in his mid-20’s, thin-build, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and 130 pounds, with brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a brown hoodie, black mask, white t-shirt and dark pants.
This case is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
