Lamorinda police – with help from neighboring jurisdictions – are searching for a man who simulated a weapon and held up the Wells Fargo bank branch at 80 Moraga Way in Orinda Saturday night.
Police are concentrating their search near the BART station at this time.
The suspect is described as a white male, 50s, 6′ tall with medium build, long black hair in a ponytail (possibly a wig) multi-colored shirt, glasses and dark pants.
Details remain hard to come by but we’ve determined the suspect entered the bank, either exhibited or simulated a gun in a bag he was carrying and demanded money and compliance from an employee shortly before 6 p.m.
At this point we do not believe anyone was injured. A police perimeter is in place and a canine search team is tracking in the area.
