CARBONDALE, Colo. - The FBI has released enhanced surveillance photos of a year-old Carbondale bank robbery in hopes the public can help identify the gunman who wore sunglasses and likely a wig and fake mustache and beard.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for the robber, who is considered armed and dangerous, the FBI said in a news release Monday. One photo shows the robber holding a black, semiautomatic handgun on a bank teller with cash on the counter.
On Saturday, May 5, 2012, the robber entered a Wells Fargo Bank, located at 1201 Highway 133, presented a demand note to a teller, brandished handgun and threatened people in the bank, the FBI said.
The robber made off with an undisclosed amount of money.
He is described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic man who is between 25 and 35 years of age. He is 5-feet-6-inches to 5-feet-9-inches tall with a thin build and weighs about 140-170 pounds.
The robber was carrying a large gray, shoulder-to-waist-length backpack that contained a zippered, expandable black duffel bag. At the time, he was wearing white baggy pants and a dark blue sweatshirt.
Anyone who has original information that leads to the identification, arrest and conviction of someone who robs a Wells Fargo Bank may be eligible for a $5,000 reward from Wells Fargo.
Anyone with information on this or other bank robberies is asked to call the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force at 303-629-7171.
Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense and increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.
