Michael S. Welch, Special Agent in Charge of the Indianapolis Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), announced today that a reward of $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification and arrest of an individual responsible for robbing two banks in Indianapolis, Indiana.

On October 30, 2009, at approximately 10:35 a.m., a lone black male, wearing a mask and bulky clothing and armed with a silver colored handgun, robbed the Flagstar Bank located at 5610 East 71st Street, Indianapolis, Indiana. After receiving an undisclosed amount of United States currency, the robber fled the bank in a blue Ford Taurus with tinted windows. Surveillance photographs of good quality were obtained.

On November 13, 2009, at approximately 9:45 a.m., the same black male robbed the Key Bank located at 2433 Lake Circle Drive, Indianapolis, Indiana. The subject wore the same mask and clothing during this robbery. The subject was again armed with a silver handgun. Again, after receiving an undisclosed amount of United States currency, the robber fled the bank in a blue Ford Taurus.

Based upon the modus operandi, as well as the physical description, it is believed that both bank robberies were committed by the same individual. The subject is described as a black male, 5’9” – 5’10”, 160 – 180 pounds, average build and dark complexion.

The subject should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information regarding this individual is asked to call the Indianapolis FBI at (317) 639-3301.
