Wells Fargo issues statement after Rancho Mirage location robbed


Wells Fargo has issued a statement after its Rancho Mirage location was robbed Thursday morning.

“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.”

The statement was sent to News Channel 3 by a Wells Fargo corporate representative Friday.

The bank reopened for business on Friday morning.

According to Deputy Robyn Flores, Riverside County Sheriff's Department public information officer, a man entered the Wells Fargo bank on the 43400 block of Bob Hope Drive at 9:16 a.m. Thursday and brandished a handgun. The department wasn't saying how much currency was taken.

No further suspect description was provided. No injuries were reported during the incident.
