Albuquerque Bank Robbery
The FBI and Albuquerque Police are looking for a man who robbed a Bank of America inside the Smith’s grocery store at 8040 Academy Road NE near Wyoming Boulevard NE on Friday night.
The suspect is described as a white male, 5’9” to 6’ tall, about 175 pounds, with a thin build.
He had some facial hair, possibly a goatee, and wore a gray long-sleeve shirt with an unknown logo on front and a baseball-style cap decorated with multi-colored graffiti that had a skull design on front. He might have been wearing blue jeans.
Witnesses say the suspect entered the store at about 6:15 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money. The note implied the robber had a gun, but no weapon was seen.
The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money. Nobody was injured.
A reward of up to $1,000 may be available for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the subject.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Albuquerque FBI Office at (505) 889-1300 (24 hours) or Albuquerque Police Crime Stoppers at 843-STOP.
