A man wearing a reflective vest robbed the First Republic Bank in Orinda, CA earlier this afternoon.

At about 1:30 p.m., a man walked into the First Republic Bank in Orinda, just off Highway 24 on Brookwood Road, police said, and handed a teller a note demanding money. He claimed he had a gun.

He left with an undisclosed amount of money on foot.

No one was hurt, and no weapon was actually seen during the robbery.

He wore a green or yellow reflective vest over a black jacket and a hat with a bill, police said.

from wsoctv.com:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Vandals left anarchy symbols and vulgar messages on the doors and walls at the Steel Haus Condos in the Plaza-Midwood community.

Sandy McGeachy said he first noticed the graffiti when he came home Friday night.

He was greeted with words like "die yuppie scum" and "your gentrification will end in catastrophe" spray painted on the door and brick walls.

Neighbors said it's the first anti-establishment graffiti they've seen, but they're not surprised by the animosity.

Neighbors a block a way said the new development is pushing older, poorer communities out.

"They're making neighborhoods nicer but pushing prices up and eventually that will push lower income families out and where they gonna go," said Lamar Gray.

The condo complex does have security cameras in the area.
