The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Chief David Rausch of the Knoxville Police Department (KPD) are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the man who robbed the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) Federal Credit Union today.
At approximately 1:45 p.m., the suspect entered the ORNL Federal Credit Union located at 808 Victor Drive, Knoxville, Tennessee; brandished a silver, semi-automatic style handgun; and demanded money. Witnesses described the suspect as a white male, age 35-40, approximately 6’1” to 6’3” tall, with a thin build. The suspect was wearing blue jeans, a dark-colored shirt, a gray jacket with a white stripe, gloves, a beige-colored knit hat with a dark pattern, and carried a dark colored book-bag.
After obtaining an undetermined amount of money, the suspect fled the scene in a newer-model blue vehicle. A reward is being offered for any information which leads to the arrest of this individual. Anyone with information is asked to please call the Knoxville FBI at 865-544-0751 or KPD at 865-215-7212. This matter is being jointly investigated by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force (which consists of personnel from the FBI, KPD, and KCSO) and the KPD Major Crimes Unit.
All defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
