The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are looking for two men who robbed Wells Fargo Bank branch at 5555 Montgomery Blvd NE, near San Pedro Drive NE, on Saturday, June 29, 2013.

One of the suspects is described as a Hispanic male, about 27 to 30 years old, approximately 5’10” tall, medium build, with a well-groomed goatee and close-cropped brown or black hair.

He wore a red Lobos baseball-style cap, a blue long-sleeved T-shirt with a horizontal white stripe on each sleeve, blue jeans, and tennis shoes.

He also had a lollipop in his mouth.

The other suspect is described as approximately 5’5” tall with a slender build. He wore black, baggy clothing.

Witnesses say the suspects entered the bank at approximately 12:45 p.m.

The taller suspect handed a teller a note demanding money while the other suspect waited near the door.

Photos of the first suspect are at the conclusion of this release.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of money to the taller suspect, who left the bank with the other suspect.

The suspects were last seen on Penelope Place NE and may have gotten into an older model brown or gold car.

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.
