A man robbed a Wells Fargo branch inside a Safeway on Mill Plain in the Vancouver Heights neighborhood Monday afternoon.

Police were dispatched to 6701 E. Mill Plain Blvd. around 4:10 p.m. The bank is inside the grocery

store next to the produce section.

A man, carrying a bag, presented a note to the teller and stated that he had a gun, said Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for the Vancouver Police Department. The teller saw the gun was inside the bag.

The suspect fled the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. He possibly got into a getaway vehicle, described as a green Mustang with a tan top, Kapp said.

Police did not find the suspect Tuesday.
