    Santa Cruz police have released photos of a suspect and getaway vehicle involved in the armed robbery of a bank earlier this month and are asking for the public's help in identifying them.

    At about 1:05 p.m. on March 3, police responded to a report of an armed robbery at a U.S. Bank branch located at 110 Morrissey Blvd.

    According to police, a masked suspect entered the bank and threatened employees at gunpoint. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money out of the cash drawers and fled. No one inside the bank was injured.

    The suspect was last seen in a mid to late 90s Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by an accomplice. The vehicle is described as light tan or champagne-colored with a charcoal bottom, roof racks, rear tinted windows, and possibly side steps, police said.
