On October 19, 2007, during the early morning hours, three men allegedly abducted a bank employee from his home in Arizona. The employee was taken to the bank where the men held him until other bank employees arrived. These employees were also held and forced to provide access to the bank vault. At approximately 8:15 a.m., after allegedly collecting a significant amount of money, all three suspects left the scene.
The suspects are believed to be white males in their mid 20s to late 30s. One suspect was wearing a plain, dull-finished wedding band and carried a black handgun with a chrome slide. He is described as being 6'0" with a slim build, brown eyes and brown eyebrows. Two of the three individuals wore black tactical-style clothing. The third, wearing a mustard-yellow construction hard hat and reflective vest, posed as a construction worker. The suspects were driving a white or silver-colored 2001-2008 Plymouth or Chrysler mini-van with the rear seats removed. (See images.)
In addition, there was a possible attempted robbery that involved a similar home invasion on the evening of October 17, 2007, in Chandler, Arizona.
The FBI is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the unknown suspects.
