Amarillo Police seek bank robber: video released
On 11-5-12, at 12:30 PM, officers responded to a robbery alarm at First Bank Southwest at 5701 SW 34th . Officers found that a male suspect entered the bank’s front door and approached a female teller.
He had a dark colored handgun in his hand. He also was carrying what appears to be a red gym bag. The suspect pointed the gun at the employee and demanded money.
The bank teller placed money in the bag. The robber then left through the front door. A witness saw him run from the bank to an alley east of the bank and south of 34th. He got into a white, single-cab older model pickup parked in the alley and left eastbound.
The robber was a male about 5ft. 9 inches tall. He was wearing a blue hooded windbreaker type jacket with the hood up over his head, a white mask, gloves, and blue jeans.
No arrests have been made and there were no injuries. If you have any information on this robbery or believe you may have seen the suspect or vehicle, call the Amarillo Police Department at 378-3038 or Amarillo Crime Stoppers 374-4400.
