ATLANTA—Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Lamkin, FBI Atlanta, requests the assistance of the public in identifying and locating the individual responsible for today’s armed robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank, located at 2280 Cascade Road, Atlanta, Georgia.
On Tuesday, December 7, 2010, at approximately 9:40 a.m., a lone black male entered the Wells Fargo Bank, located at 2280 Cascade Road, Atlanta, Georgia, and, after initially being waited on by a customer service representative, discreetly announced a robbery. The robber, wearing an Ace-type medical bandage around his face and a sling on his left arm, displayed a weapon that he pulled from the arm sling, stating, “You know what time it is.” The robber then forced the bank employee to multiple teller stations where she was made to place money in a blue bag that he provided. During this process, the robber then openly displayed the weapon, a silver semi-automatic handgun, for the rest of the bank occupants to see.
After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the robber departed the bank without further incident. No vehicle associated with the robber was observed.
The robber is described as being a black male, 25-35 years in age, 5’6” to 5’8” in height, small build, weighing 140-145 lbs. He was wearing a dark blue with light blue striped rugby style long sleeved shirt, and an Ace bandage around his face with an additional bandage over his nose.
Wells Fargo Bank has announced a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this individual.
Anyone with information regarding this matter should contact the Atlanta Division of the FBI at (404) 679-9000.
