Mill Valley police are searching for a man who robbed a local bank Monday and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
 
According to a news release from MVPD, the robbery was reported at 11:18 a.m. at the Bank of the West location on E. Blithedale.
 
"Without delay Officers arrived on scene and established a perimeter around the bank," the statement says.  "After contacting the bank employees, it was determined that the suspect had already fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. "
 
Police searched the area, but didn't find the man, who is described as white, about 30 to 45 years old, 5 foot 8 inches to 6 feet tall, with possible facial hair in the form of a goatee or stubble.
