Police have released surveillance photos from a bank robbery in Laguna Hills on July 20. It is the second time the Bank of America branch in the 23700 block of Moulton Parkway has been robbed in a little more than year.In the most recent robbery, a man armed with a semi-automatic handgun entered the bank and ordered everyone to face the wall. He ordered the bank manager and a teller into the vault and took an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man with a slight build, 5'0" to 5'5", weighing approximately 100 pounds. He wore what appeared to be a black wig.

Investigators believe he had an accomplice, and that they may have fled the scene in a blue, late model, Dodge Ram truck, which was also captured on surveillance cameras.

It is not known if this is the same man who held up the branch in June, 2008.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI 24-hour hotline at (714) 647-7000.
