Robbery suspect seen on June 10 & 11, 2013
The FBI is searching for a suspect accused of robbing two banks in the metro area.
Investigators say on June 11 at 1:13 p.m., the man walked into the First Convenience Bank inside of a Wal-Mart store near Baseline Road and Country Club Drive. He handed the teller a note demanding cash. The teller complied, giving him a known amount of money.
The suspect fled the store and left in a blue/green or gray/green sedan.
Investigators believe the same suspect is responsible for another robbery that took place June 10 at a Desert Schools Federal Credit Union in Tempe near Elliot and Priest Drive.
At 4:41 p.m., authorities say the suspect entered the Wal-Mart store and proceeded to the credit union inside. The man paced back and forth in front of the branch until the teller was finished with a customer. That's when he gave the teller a demand note.
The teller dropped the note and gave a known amount of cash to the suspect. The suspect then repeated his demands for the return of the note and wouldn't leave until the teller gave it to him.
Take a look at the surveillance photos.
During the FCB robbery, the suspect wear wearing a red ASU baseball cap, black sunglasses, a tan long sleeve button up shift, jeans and bright white tennis shoes. At the DSFCU robbery, the suspect wore a tan/green baseball cap with the letter H on the front, black sunglasses, a tan button up shirt, blue jeans and was carrying a back pack.
The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s, 5' 10" to 6' tall with a slender build and a mustache.
Investigators say a weapon was not shown during the robberies.
