Seeking Public’s Assistance in Identifying Serial Bank Robber
|FBI Oklahoma City December 11, 2009|
The FBI is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a serial bank robber thought to be responsible for at least 11 bank robberies, including one in Tulsa today and one in Fort Smith, Arkansas, Thursday.
A white male robbed the Valley National Bank located at 2020 East 21st Street in Tulsa at approximately 10 am Friday. According to witnesses, the man was between 55 and 65 years of age, at least six feet tall, and weighed between 240 and 250 pounds. He was said to be wearing blue jeans, a green flight jacket, black tennis shoes, and black ball cap. A man matching this description also robbed Regions Bank in Fort Smith, Arkansas, Thursday afternoon. That man was last seen driving west out of Fort Smith in a silver SUV bearing an Oklahoma license plate.
The FBI believes this same person is responsible for bank robberies in Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, New York and Virginia.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for these robberies. Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI at (405) 290-7770.
