Sacramento Police officers responded to a reported bank robbery late Friday morning in the Arden Arcade area.

“This morning officers responded to an alarm at the bank,” said Officer Doug Morris, Spokesperson for the Sacramento Police Department. The CitiBank branch is located in a strip mall in the 400 block of Howe Avenue in the Arden Arcade area.

“The subject passed a note to the teller; that subject actually received money from the teller and fled,” Morris said.

The suspect had stuffed the cash in his pockets and literally left a money trail.

The suspect began shedding clothes as he fled through business areas and over residential fences.

“Officers were able to quickly saturate the area,” Morris said. “A subject matching the description was located.”

When officers caught up with the suspect he was wearing shorts and shoes. The suspect was positively identified by several witnesses.

Some of the suspects clothing was found near a sidewalk on Sierra Boulevard just east of Howe Avenue.

The suspect was taken into custody behind the dental offices in the 700 block of Howe Avenue.

The bank remained closed for several hours after the incident. No weapon found and there was no indication that one was  used in the robbery. The FBI also responded to the incident  according to Morris.
