Help Us Catch This Bank Robbery Suspect

On May 28, 2013, the lone suspect pictured below entered the Bank of the West at 1551 Pacific Ave and demanded cash from the teller.  The suspect also threatened the teller, as well as demanding he not be given any bills with a dye-pack, or GPS device.  

The teller handed over the cash to the suspect.  He walked out of the bank through the doors on the Pacific Avenue side and then fled southbound on Pacific Avenue.  There were 2 additional customers inside the bank at the time as well as additional bank staff.  No one was injured in the robbery.  No weapon was actually seen. 

Here are a few portraits of our suspect in the act...

If you're Mr. Robber and you're looking at these might consider the unconditional full surrender option, as it is likely we'll have you identified pretty quickly.
