ATLANTA—Special Agent in Charge Gregory Jones, FBI Atlanta, along with the Gwinnett County Police Department, is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying and locating a serial bank robber who robbed the Wachovia Bank, Holcomb Corners, Norcross, Georgia, today.

On Friday, November 27, 2009, at approximately 12:42 p.m., a lone black male, wearing a black motorcycle helmet, leather jacket, and a police badge around his neck, entered the Wachovia Bank, Holcomb Corners, Norcross, Georgia, and verbally announced a bank robbery to a bank teller while threatening a weapon. The robber departed the bank without incident, having obtained an undisclosed amount of money.

The robber was described as being a light skinned black male, late 30s in age, 5’8”-5’10” in height, approximately 175 lbs., wearing a black motorcycle helmet, dark sunglasses, black leather jacket, a black shirt with white letters (possibly with “Police”) on front, and wearing a silver law enforcement badge around his neck. 

The above robber is possibly injured from an exploding dye pack.  He is also believed to be responsible for a similar bank robbery in Sandy Springs, Georgia last month and was observed departing in a black two-door Infiniti from that robbery.

Anyone with information regarding these robberies is asked to contact the Atlanta Division of the FBI at (404) 679-9000.
