Bank of America robbed in McKinleyville; search continues for suspects

mckinleyville 1 Law enforcement is still looking for the men who robbed the McKinleyville branch of Bank of America this morning, June 27.
At about 10:03 a.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office was notified of an armed robbery which just occurred at the Bank of America. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Dispatch center was advised by witnesses that the suspect was dropping money as he fled the bank. The suspect was armed with a handgun.
When deputies arrived on scene they met with witnesses who told them the suspect entered the bank and immediately began waving a black revolver around, pointing it at the tellers and customers while telling them it was a bank robbery.
The suspect jumped over the counter and loaded up a bag that he brought with the bank’s money. After loading up the bag, the suspect fled the bank on foot westbound on Hiller Road, dropping money as he fled. Witnesses saw the suspect get into a vehicle being driven by another person. The suspect was seen by witnesses getting into a white Nissan Pathfinder or Xterra type vehicle with tinted rear windows. It was being driven by a second suspect. The vehicle was last seen westbound on Hiller Road.

An immediate broadcast of the bank robbery suspect and vehicle description was sent to all local law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement units from all Humboldt County agencies immediately began searching for the vehicle and suspect. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) responded and is assisting with the investigation.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I was curious how something like that slipped past you.
      I know, things happen.
      Thanks for the quick response.

  1. If someone leaves an idiotic comment like the one I deleted, it might take some time before I see it. I don’t check the website all the time. If there’s something really bad and you see it, email me at That will speed up the deletion process.

    • Will keep an eye out for really demeaning comments …and/or bigots.

      I knew you peruse the comments when you didn’t publish my comment regarding the closure of the McKinleyville B of A when I called them bastards.

      Keep up the good work. I do appreciate the web articles.


      • I would have left that in, especially considering that you use your real name. Perhaps I mistakenly deleted it while managing the spam comments.

        • No problem. There are plenty of bastards to go around. No doubt one will pop up again fairly soon.

  2. Really? You left a comment such as that?
    Who do you think you are? Paula Deen?
    Not cool, at all Baba.
