FBI: IMB Bank robbery suspect cased other bank first
The Oklahoma City Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation says the man who robbed a bank in north Oklahoma City walked through a different bank first.
The FBI said they were called to investigate a bank robbery at IBC Bank near NW 23rd and Portland Wednesday around noon. According to the FBI, the man walked into the bank, went into the restroom and then handed a note to the teller.
The note said he had a gun and demanded money. The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money and the man put it into a black briefcase before he left.
According to the FBI, he never showed a gun. Nobody was injured in the robbery.
The man was caught on camera in the bank and was seen driving away in a silver 4-door Honda Accord.
The FBI says the same man was caught on camera at the First Commercial Bank near NW 23rd and Classen, about 4 miles away, 30 minutes before the robbery. According a press release from the FBI, the man walked into the bank around 11:30 AM Wednesday and walked to the restroom. He then left the bank about one minute later.
The suspect is described as a man, 5'7" -5'9", medium build, wearing a brown two button blazer, tan pants, blue and white checkered shirt, cream colored hat, dark aviator glasses, black gloves, and a mask depicting an older white male.
