Authorities are investigating an armed bank robbery reported in Rancho Mirage Thursday.

Deputies received a call at 9:16 a.m. that a man entered the Wells Fargo bank at 42350 Bob Hope Drive, brandished a handgun and left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, according to Riverside County sheriff’s Deputy Robyn Flores.

The suspect was only identified as a unknown male.

There were no injuries reported and no arrests, Flores said.

Deputies were investigating at the scene as of 11:25 a.m.

The location is the same Wells Fargo that was robbed on June 10th of last year. Police were also never able to locate that suspect.

Wells Fargo released this statement to NBC Palm Springs:

“Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our customers and team members, and we are thankful no one was harmed during this robbery. We recognize this has been a very stressful situation for all involved. Counselors, through our Employee Assistance Consulting service, will be made available to support our team members. Additionally, a full-time security guard will be in place at the branch and additional protections for team members will be in place very soon.

Any additional questions about this incident should be directed to local law enforcement as there is an on-going criminal investigation with which we are fully cooperating.”
