A wide array of law enforcement personnel, including Amador Sheriff’s deputies and the F.B.I. are still searching for a man who brandished a handgun and robbed the American River Bank in Pioneer on Monday.

According to the Amador County Sheriff’s Office, the man entered the bank at around 1:08 p.m. hours, at about the same time they received a silent hold up alarm.

Arriving deputies determined a white male adult, approximately 30 years old, clean shaven, wearing a tan beanie, sunglasses, tan long sleeve shirt with the letters HAT over the left chest pocket, tan pants and deck shoes entered the bank armed with what appeared to be a black semi-automatic pistol. The suspect stole an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency and was last seen fleeing on foot on Buckhorn Ridge Road. No one was injured during this incident.

ACSO deputies saturated the Buckhorn area and began a manhunt, which included traffic stops and a door-to-door search in the immediate area. A Sheriff’s Canine officer as well as a California Highway Patrol helicopter was also used to search the area. A Reverse 911 notification was launched advising residents of the crime and asking for their assistance. Late Tuesday, the ACSO released several frame grabs taken from video surveillance footage from inside the bank.

At this time the suspect is still outstanding. If you have seen the man, or have any information related to this crime please call the Amador County Sheriff’s Office at 209-223-6500 or Amador County Secret Witness at (209) 223-4900.
