Police hope photos will help ID Raleigh bank robber

Posted March 11, 2013

— Police say they are still looking for a man wanted in a downtown Raleigh bank robbery three months ago.

The suspected robber walked into the First Citizens Bank branch, at 239 Fayetteville St., around 11:15 a.m. on Dec. 3 and handed the teller a note demanding money.

He was last seen heading north on Fayetteville Street wearing a white shirt, dark-colored jacket, dark pants and a ball cap.

Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue says that, despite an extensive investigation, investigators have not been able to identify the man.

"Due to the clarity of the surveillance photos, detectives believe someone is likely to recognize or remember the suspect," he said.

Anyone with information about the man or the bank robbery is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357 or report a tip at the Raleigh Crime Stoppers website, www.raleighcrimestoppers.org.

    He looks a little bit like Snoop Dogg.

    Were these photos made public 3 months ago? He could have a full beard by now.

    You can't even submit a tip; the special "code" doesn't display properly (now, on 3 different browsers). I wonder just how many tips this crimestoppers site gets.

    Very good pics indeed. Hopefully someone will recognize and call the police so they can put this man behind bars for 20 years.

    Its possible this person isn't even from this area or state which would make a local picture posting a little less useful. Hope they eventually catch the guy. With his picture on the LEO radar he will always be looked for.

    Profile: Appears to be very calm as he walks out the door, no more different than a very comfortable customer. Appears he is fimilar with the bank & area and his vanishing act could be because he lives in another area. Can't help but think, this isn't the first robbery this calm & collected robber got away with. And isn't he dressed nice are those new duds for your trip?

    People won't turn him in. As long as he's bringing them money, they could care less.

    pretty good photos, someone should recognize him for sure.
