U.S. Bank Offers Reward of Up to $10,000 for Arrest and Conviction in May 2nd Robbery
U.S. Bank is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any individuals responsible for committing any bank robberies at any U.S. Bank branch—including the May 2nd robbery of a branch located at 3485 Commercial Street SE in Salem.
The FBI is still seeking tips from the public in the effort to identify and locate the man who is believed to be responsible for that robbery, as well as another robbery that happened on April 28 at the Umpqua Bank branch located at 1790 Garden Valley Boulevard in Roseburg. In both cases, the man walked into the bank, approached the teller’s desk, threatened that he had a weapon, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was physically hurt in either robbery.
Witnesses describe the man as:
- Race: White
- Age: 40s to 50s
- Height: 5’6”-5’10” tall
- Weight: 160-180 pounds
- Hair: Dark
- Clothing: In the first robbery, the man was wearing a dark colored jacket, blue jeans, a baseball cap, and sneakers. In the second robbery, he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the word “Oregon” on the front.
Statement by U.S. Bank: “U.S. Bank hopes that this reward will aid in the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible and underlines the seriousness of this crime. U.S. Bank is concerned about the welfare and safety of its employees and customers and will not tolerate either of them being placed in danger.”
The FBI is investigating these robberies in partnership with the Roseburg Police Department and the Salem Police Department.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity or his location is asked to call the FBI at (503) 362-6601 (in Salem); (541) 343-5222 (in Eugene); or your local police.
