FBI Offers Reward to Catch Albuquerque Bank Robbery Crew
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two armed suspects who robbed a northeast Albuquerque bank on Saturday, June 26, 2021, and an Albuquerque credit union the day before.
Bank of the West, located at 7900 Wyoming Boulevard NE, was robbed at approximately 10:16 a.m. Saturday.
The male suspect is described as black, about 6'0" tall, with a slender build. He was dressed in black and wore a mask, black gloves, and a black cap with a swoosh logo.
The female suspect is approximately 5'0" to 5'4” tall, with a slender build. She wore a blue hooded sweatshirt with the words “Air Jordan” in white and red on the front.
Both are in their 20s.
The man entered the bank, displayed an assault rifle, and climbed over the teller counter to seize an undisclosed amount of money.
The woman, armed with a handgun, took an elderly man’s truck keys, cell phone, and wallet, and a purse from a female customer.
The suspects left the bank in a silver sedan with a sunroof, the same vehicle used in the robbery of Nusenda Credit Union, 2801 Juan Tabo Boulevard NE, at approximately 11 a.m. Friday.
The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are investigating.
Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to contact the FBI at (505) 889-1300, or Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (505) 843-STOP.
