Albany, Georgia Bank Robber Tied to Second Robbery
Acting Special Agent in Charge (A/SAC) George Crouch, FBI Atlanta; Albany, Georgia Police Chief Michael J. Persley; and Dothan, Alabama Police Chief Steven Parrish are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating a suspect who may have robbed banks in both Albany and Dothan.
On September 9, 2016, shortly after 11 a.m. an unknown black male walked into the People’s South Bank at 701 North Westover Boulevard in Albany, Georgia and presented a note to a teller demanding money. The suspect then walked out the bank with an unknown amount of cash. It has not been confirmed at this time if the suspect was armed.
The suspect is described as a black male, about 6’0” tall, wearing an army green hat and shirt. He was seen leaving the bank in a white, older-model four-door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Impala.
Excellent work by the Albany Police Department leads us to believe the robbery may be connected to a second bank robbery that happened on August 18, 2016 in Dothan, Alabama.
At approximately 11 a.m. on September 18, an unidentified suspect walked into the Wells Fargo Bank at 3051 Montgomery Highway in Dothan, Alabama. The suspect presented a teller with a note, indicated he had a gun, and demanded money. A witness told police the suspect left the scene in an older, white, four-door passenger vehicle. Video surveillance from a nearby business indicated the car was a late 90s to early 2000s Chevrolet Impala.
Surveillance photos of the suspect from the People’s South Bank in Albany, Georgia and the Wells Fargo Bank in Dothan, Alabama appear to be the same individual.
Anyone with information should contact the FBI Atlanta Field Office at (404) 679-9000.
