FBI Seeks Information on Serial Armed Bank Robbers
|FBI Philadelphia March 10, 2014|
The FBI and its law enforcement partners are seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subjects responsible for two armed takeover bank robberies in the past two months.
At approximately 9:44 a.m. on February 21, 2014, the subjects entered the Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 2370 East Lincoln Highway in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. Subject #1 carried a silver semi-automatic handgun and a red plastic five-gallon gas container. (No reference to the container was made, and its relevance is unknown.) While Subject #1 stayed in the public area of the bank, Subject #2 vaulted over the teller counter and took an undisclosed amount of cash, placing it in a red bag with black drawstrings. Both subjects then fled the area of the bank.
The same subjects are believed responsible for the January 22 robbery of the Wells Fargo Bank branch at 2 Washington Crossing Pennington Road in Pennington, New Jersey. It was carried out in a similar manner, with one subject vaulting the counter and taking money while the other displayed a handgun in the public area of the bank.
At both scenes, the subjects wore masks and gloves. They are described as black males in their mid-20s to mid-30s, approximately 5’10”-6’1” tall.
These subjects are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about these robberies or these subjects is urged to call the FBI at (215) 641-8910. There may be a reward from law enforcement for information leading to these subjects’ capture. In addition, Wells Fargo is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the subjects’ arrest and conviction; tipsters can remain anonymous.
