FBI: Suspect wearing ‘old man’ mask robs Carlsbad bank

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The FBI says a man in an “old man” mask with a bushy mustache robbed a Carlsbad bank at gunpoint on Friday afternoon.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher said the suspect walked into the U-1st Community Federal Credit Union at 601 N. Canal Street around 5 p.m., pulled out a handgun and demanded money from a teller.

Fisher said the suspect was given cash and fled in a blue Chevrolet Z71 pickup truck with a black hood and black trim.

The suspect is described as 6 feet tall and he wore a dark hoodie and gloves with baggy khaki pants tucked into brown boots.
