Good quality surveillance photos from yesterday's robbery of the Summit Bank branch in the Heights. The summary from LRPD:
About 5 p.m. Monday, officers responded to a bank robbery at 1800 Taylor, Summit Bank. Upon arrival, officers made contact with employees of the bank. They advised that a white male entered the bank just before closing and approached a teller. The white male reached in his right front pocket and gave him a note stating, “He had a gun and to give him the money." The teller gave the suspect an undetermined amount of money. The suspect then ran southbound on Taylor from the bank, crossing Cantrell during heavy traffic. The suspect was described as a white male, 5’10- 5’11, 150-160 pounds, 25-30 years of age, wearing a red, long sleeved button up shirt, khaki pants, clean shaven, shaved hair cut “brown”, and sunglasses.
UPDATE: The LRPD has identified the suspect as Christopher W. Gable, 29. He's believed to be driving a red Dodge pickup with damage to the bed on the passenger side. He should be presumed to be armed and dangerous.
