FBI seeks suspected bank robber who wears just one glove

Copyright © 2022 Albuquerque Journal

He may not be the King of Pop – but he’s become something of a smooth criminal.

Authorities are looking for a man wearing one glove who has evaded capture after robbing, or trying to rob, at least three Albuquerque-area banks this month.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher said the most recent robbery was last week on Tuesday afternoon in the South Valley.

He said the man walked into the Bank of the West on Isleta SW, just south of Rio Bravo, around 3:30 p.m. and gave the teller a demand note. The robber was given an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot.

The man was described as Hispanic, 5 feet 5 inches, wearing a black baseball cap, black-and-white Nike shoes and a black glove on his left hand.

Fisher said the same man is suspected of trying to rob a First Financial Credit Union in Rio Rancho on Jan. 15 and of robbing a Bank of the West in Albuquerque on Jan. 12. The man wore a glove on his left hand in that robbery, as well.

Fisher said the FBI is offering up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the robber.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI at (505) 889-1300, or Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (505) 843-STOP.
