"These are clear pictures and can help identify this individual. We request anyone with information about this man to call the FBI at 212-384-1000 or their local police. Tips from the public are crucial in helping us apprehend suspects” said Special Agent Richard Kolko. “As always, there is a cash reward for information leading to this individual’s arrest and anyone who submits a tip may remain anonymous.”
