Wells Fargo Offers Reward in Attempted Bank Robbery Investigation

  • Public Affairs Specialist Bridget Pappas (702) 385-1281

Wells Fargo is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the attempted bank robbery that occurred at one of their locations last Saturday:

Wells Fargo Bank
6110 W Cheyenne
Las Vegas, Nevada
April 19, 2014, 8:19 a.m.

The unknown suspect is described as a black male, 25 years old, 5’5” tall, and 150 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black/gay knit cap, a black zip-up jacket with an argyle pattern, and gray pants.

The suspect forced his way into the bank as the employees were unlocking the door and opening the business. He demanded money from the victims and ultimately took a brown Wells Fargo bank bag. The suspect also took an employee’s purse and cell phone. During the robbery, he struck one of the victims on the head with the handgun, causing a laceration. The suspect then left the business in an unknown direction on foot.

Law enforcement is particularly concerned with the level of violence used by this criminal and the possibility of him acting again, resulting in serious injury to an innocent person.
