FBI searching for ‘armed and dangerous’ Amarillo bank robbery suspect


The FBI in Dallas is asking for help in identifying a man believed to have robbed a bank in Amarillo in mid-November.

The suspect is considered “armed and dangerous,” a FBI news release said Friday.

Carrying a small frame handgun, the yet-to-be-identified man entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 34th and Bell Streets in Amarillo, demanded money, fired one shot into the ceiling and then obtained “an undisclosed amount of money.” He fled the bank on foot.

The suspect in the robbery, which occurred on Nov. 13, is described as roughly 6 feet tall and weighing 200 to 220 pounds.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing dark sunglasses, a white construction hard hat, a green safety vest, and a dark zip-up hoodie with a white zipper and dark jeans.

“The suspect had a glove on his left hand, but did not have a glove on his right hand,” the FBI said. “He may have a tattoo on the top of his right wrist.”

Those with information are asked to call the FBI Amarillo Resident Agency at (806) 376-6395 or the FBI Dallas Field Office at (972) 559-5000.
