FBI offers rewards for serial bank robbers

MINNEAPOLIS – The FBI in Minneapolis is offering two rewards up to $5,000 each for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two Twin Cities-area bank robbers.

The first suspect allegedly robbed banks in Inver Grove Heights, South St. Paul, Minneapolis, Rosemount, and Hudson, Wis., within the last month. He’s also accused of an attempted robbery in St. Paul.

He’s described as a white male in his 30s, around 6 feet tall, with a slender to medium build. He has worn a baseball cap with dark sunglasses placed on top of the hat, and he has covered his face with a white or black bandanna.

The second suspect is accused in an October robbery in Inver Grove Heights and an August robbery in Burnsville. He’s described as a black male in his 30s, about 6-foot-2, and between 200 and 250 pounds. He has worn a road construction vest, construction-type goggles over his eyes and tan work gloves.

The FBI is teaming up with the Minnesota Bankers Association to offer the rewards.
