Police got a call from a bank customer at 3:50 p.m. on Christmas Eve, saying the door to the bank were open but no one was inside.
A woman walked through the unlocked doors, looked around the empty bank, and called police. A sign on the door announced the bank would close at 2 p.m. that day.
Officers came out, and a bank manager walked through the place and told police, “Nothing appears to be out of the norm,” according to the police blotter.
He locked the doors and said he’d call police if anything was missing when the bank reopens.
Wells Fargo spokeswoman Julie Campbell said the bank is “still investigating the matter,” but said there was no crime and no money or equipment was taken from the bank.
