BALTIMORE (WJZ)– In a particularly bold move, a man of suspected of robbery commits his third one for the week, and in broad daylight.
Police believe the same suspect robbed a Wells Fargo at 721 North Hammonds Ferry Road in Linthicum on Saturday afternoon. The robbery is the third this week and sixth overall.
But now, the FBI is working fast to get this man off the streets:
The suspect is wanted for a string of six bank robberies in a month’s time.
On Saturday, the suspect presented a note at the Wells Fargo on North Hammonds Ferry Road.
“It’s a safety factor, it doesn’t make me feel safe at all,” said Joseph Lechinski, from Baltimore.
“It’s a strange thing, I don’t know how it’s happening again and again,” said John Sen, who live in Baltimore.
With no disguise — he’s been caught clearly on surveillance video every time.
“They’re really good quality. He’s not making any attempt to cover his face. And we believe that somebody’s going to see this, they’re going to know who it is,” said Assistant Special Agent Scott Hinckley, FBI Baltimore.
The string of robberies started October 19th at BB&T Bank in Pikesville. Soon after, the suspect hit banks in Parkville, Harbor East, Fells Point, Locus Point and now, Linthicum.
Each time, the FBI tells WJZ, the robber claims to be armed — and although he’s never shown a weapon, he’s considered dangerous.
“It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when someone calls in and says this is who it is and then we’ll go get this guy off the streets,” said Assistant Special Agent Hinckley.
The suspect is described as 150 pounds, under 6-feet-tall, and in his 20s.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this individual. The suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous.
