The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are looking for a man who pointed a gun at two tellers during a bank robbery at Wells Fargo at 3401 Coors Blvd NW, Albuquerque, on January 30, 2013.

The suspect had a dark, thick mustache and wore a black baseball cap with a U.S. flag logo on it, similar to the description of the man who robbed two Albuquerque banks on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.

Authorities are investigating whether this is the same individual and if he also could have been involved in a pair of additional bank robberies in Albuquerque on January 12 and January 23.

In the latest robbery, the suspect was described as white, approximately 5’6” to 5’8” tall, about 150 pounds, and in his 30s. He had light blue to gray eyes and a pointed nose.

The suspect had a tattoo on the underside of his right forearm and possibly a tear drop tattoo near the corner of his left eye.

He wore a short-sleeved beige shirt, blue jeans, and the baseball cap.

Witnesses say the suspect walked into the bank at approximately 4:49 p.m.

He pointed a pistol at a teller and demanded money. After he received the money, he pointed the gun at another teller and again demanded money.

The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense, and the penalty increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.

The FBI may pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest and conviction.
