FBI Announces $25,000 Reward for Harrisburg-Area Armed Serial Bank Robber

The FBI’s Philadelphia Division, Harrisburg Resident Agency, is seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subject responsible for a string of armed bank robberies in and around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this individual.

His four robberies spanned a three-month period, from mid-October 2016 into January 2017:

  • October 14, 2016—M&T Bank—5219 Simpson Ferry Road, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
  • December 9, 2016—M&T Bank—5528 Carlisle Pike, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
  • December 23, 2016—Fulton Bank—599 North 12th Street, Lemoyne, Pennsylvania
  • January 6, 2017—M&T Bank—4950 Jonestown Road, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Each robbery occurred on a Friday evening, minutes before the bank’s closing. The subject would enter, brandish a gun, and advance behind the teller counter. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, he’d flee the area of the bank.

The subject has been described as a male, light complexion, approximately 25 to 35 years old, and 5’10” to 6’0” tall with a stocky to muscular build. At the time of the robberies, he had a closely-cropped beard and mustache.

The subject wore dark-framed glasses or sunglasses and dark-colored clothing for all four robberies. Some specific items of note are his weapon—a large semi-automatic handgun that appeared to be covered in camouflage-pattern tape—a camouflage face covering and distinctive sneakers worn during the October robbery, and several baseball caps worn thereafter.

Again, the FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for these armed bank robberies, who is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or share what they know at tips.fbi.gov; tipsters can remain anonymous.
