Man attempts to rob Wells Fargo

The unidentified man who attempted to rob the Boulder City branch of Wells Fargo, 412 Nevada Way, on Wednesday, March 27, and Nevada State Bank, 1460 S. Boulder Highway, Henderson, has yet to be apprehended.

According to the Boulder City Police call log, a bearded black man wearing a gray shirt, shorts and glasses came into the bank around 11:45 a.m. The teller said he had a crumpled $100 bill and asked to get a new one. The teller exchanged the bills, and he then presented a note asking for everything the teller had and no dye packs. Both the teller and the manager said they were confused by the note and asked for it back. He then left on foot and headed north on Avenue B toward Colorado Street.

Nobody was injured.

A man matching the same description came to Nevada State Bank on Boulder Highway shortly after, at approximately 12:25 p.m., and attempted to rob it.

According to the Henderson Police Department, it was determined the man approached a teller window and produced a note stating it was a robbery. Nobody saw any weapons, and like in Boulder City, the suspect fled the scene before getting any money. There were no injuries at this attempted robbery.

Henderson Police said the man was approximately 6 feet tall and weighed approximately 135 pounds.

Anyone who has information about this man should contact Detective Mark DuBois at Boulder City Police Department, 702-293-9224, ext. 1.
