ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The FBI is looking for a man suspected of robbing four banks and trying to rob a fifth over the past two weeks in the Albuquerque area.

Frank Fisher, an FBI spokesman, said a warrant has been issued for Jason Cruz Cordova, 30, charging him with robbing a First Convenience Bank at Unser and Southern in Rio Rancho on Aug. 16 and attempting to rob the Bank of the West on Juan Tabo near Lomas in Albuquerque three days later.

He said Cordova is also suspected of robbing the New Mexico Bank & Trust on Jefferson near Osuna NE on Aug. 17, robbing the First Convenience Bank on Coors near Interstate 40 on Aug. 23 and robbing the Western Commerce Bank on Wyoming near Indian School NE on Aug. 27.

“In the most recent robbery, which occurred shortly before 5 p.m., the suspect wore a red shirt and gray shorts,” Fisher wrote in an email. “Cordova is described as a Hispanic male, 5’6″ tall, weighing 170 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.”

The FBI offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect.
