The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are looking for a heavily tattooed man who was barefoot and had a handgun when he robbed New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Union located at 6501 Indian School Road NE in Albuquerque on Monday afternoon (July 16, 2012).
The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s or early 60s, about 5’10 to 5’11 tall, with a medium build. He had black hair with some dark gray.
The suspect wore a white T-shirt, plaid shorts, and a light blue baseball-style cap with a University of North Carolina logo on it. A pair of sunglasses were propped on top of the hat.
He entered the bank barefoot and had tattoos on both legs from his knees to his ankles.
Witnesses say he entered the bank at about 2:30 p.m., put a handgun on a teller’s counter, and demanded money. He took an undisclosed amount of money and left in a vehicle.
Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense, and the penalty increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.
Anyone with information about this bank robbery is asked to call the Albuquerque FBI Office at (505) 889-1300 (24 hours) or Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (505) 843-STOP.
The FBI may pay a reward of $1,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest and conviction.
