DUBLIN — Police are confident that with the public's help they can quickly nab a large man who robbed a Bank of America on Tuesday morning because the robbery was caught on tape.

The robbery occurred at 10:15 a.m. at 7496 Dublin Blvd. The suspect entered the bank carrying a hardcover book with singer Toni Braxton on the cover and a dark-colored backpack, police said.

"There was no gun seen, just a note," said Dublin Lt. Glenn Moon. The note, which was given to a teller, read: "this is a robbery." The suspect was calm and took his note back with him as he left the bank. No vehicle was seen.

The video taken with a bank camera caught a complete description of the suspect. He is described as having a dark complexion, in his mid- to late-30s, 6 feet tall, 250 to 280 pounds, with no facial hair and a protruding chin with acne scars.

He wore a dark baseball cap, black knit scarf around his neck — possibly concealing a tattoo or scar — a white short-sleeved sport shirt with small horizontal and vertical stripes, over a green long-sleeve sweatshirt and dark, baggy jeans.

The suspect's upper teeth are crooked and he wore a removable silver metal grill on his bottom teeth that covered all bottom teeth individually.

He wore aviator sunglasses with mirrored lenses.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call police at (925) 833-6684.
