Danville police are on the lookout for a man who entered the First Republic Bank at 680 Hartz Avenue a little before noon Thursday, presented a banking officer with a note demanding money and reinforced that demand by displaying a pistol.

The suspect is described as a white male with fair complexion and acne scars, 6’ 1”, 260-270 lbs, 40-50 years old, wearing tan cargo pants, a salmon polo shirt and a white hat with the American flag on it.

He is believed armed with a Beretta pistol, kept in a folding or zip up case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Steve Stapleton at 925-314-3700 or sstapleton@danville.ca.gov.  Tips can also be reported anonymously by texting “danvillepd” and the tip to 888-777.


    • We don’t believe so, Lissette. Different description and the suspect in that case made off with an opioid.
