Man had handgun in Main Street branch robbery

Pleasanton police are searching for a man who held up Comerica Bank in the 600 block of Main Street Monday.

The man, a white male between 45-50 years old entered the bank, displayed a handgun and demanded money from a teller. He made off on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said. No car associated with the holdup was seen by witnesses.

The suspect is described as 6-foot 3 inches to 6-foot 5 inches tall, weighing between 230 and 250 pounds. He is unshaven with a light-colored mustache and short brown hair. He was wearing a light green button up shirt, black pants and black-rimmed glasses.

Witnesses described the man as using a bad French accent to disguise his voice.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.

Geez. This guy is not too bright. No mask, hoodie, disguise, etc.
Almost makes you wonder if he is down and out and wanted a trip to the slammer (free room and board, free medical care, free exercise equipment, color TV).

Oh my GOSH! I'm so LMAO. That's the funniest post I've ever read! Really. I mean that is just really really funny!

But, seriously, when someone expresses envy of and resentment toward people who are incarcerated for much of their adult lives, they must themselves be futilely trying to dig themselves out of a pretty serious trough of depression.

Cheers!!!

I don't think that borrowing a little bit of money is such a bad thing...after all, there's a lot of money in a bank...duh

Maybe it was a woman that robbed the bank...a bit big but there are lots of big women who can look like a man and you don't even know it...yup, that's what happened...hope she doesn't get caught!

If she shares half the money with me, she can stay for a very nice chicken dinner with all the trimmings! HOORAY!

yum-yum plenty!
