Oxygen-tank toting bank robber might have struck again

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Authorities believe the man who robbed a bank near Eubank Friday Night may have also hit the Kirtland Federal Credit Union this morning — sans oxygen.


Local FBI spokesman Darrin Jones said authorities are not sure Saturday’s robber is the same person but said he had a similar appearance. Saturday’s robber is described as a white man in his late 30s or early 40s, about 5 feet 11 inches tall. He was wearing a dark blue or black baseball cap, a dark coat and blue jeans. Witnesses also said he had severely yellowed teeth with a large gap between his front teeth.

The subject implied that he had a weapon and escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Jones said the oxygen mask used during yesterday’s robbery may have been a disguise, or the subject might have decided to forgo the tank for a short time today. The picture to the left is surveillance video from Friday night’s robbery.
