The FBI is searching for the man responsible for two armed robberies on July 25 and Aug. 8 of the Wells Fargo Bank at 10422 Abercorn St. in Savannah.
The suspect is described as a black male in his late teens or early 20s, 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, slender build, wearing a hat, partial facial cover and blue latex gloves and was armed with a black semi-auto handgun, according to a press release issued this week from the FBI field office in Atlanta.
On July 25 around 10:44 a.m., the Wells Fargo Bank was robbed by a lone black male armed with a handgun. After demanding money from two tellers, the robber pointed his firearm at the tellers while bank surveillance photos showed that his finger was on the trigger. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the robber departed the bank without further incident.
On Aug. 8 around 10:44 a.m., the same Wells Fargo Bank was robbed by the same lone black male armed with a dark semi-auto handgun. After demanding money and again pointing his weapon while in the bank branch, the robber jumped on top of the teller counter and brandished a second handgun. The robber then obtained an undisclosed amount of money and departed the bank without further incident.
A combined reward of up to $15,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this individual. Wells Fargo has offered a reward of $10,000, Crime Stoppers Savannah has offered $2,500, and the FBI has offered $2,500.
This case is being investigated by the FBI-led Southeast Georgia Violent Crimes Task Force.
