$26K Reward Offered for Tips in Bank Robbery

Posted April 2, 2008 3:54 p.m. EDT

— An unnamed party has offered a $25,000 reward for information in a Fayetteville bank robbery.

The Fayetteville/Cumberland Crime Stoppers announced the award on Wednesday. Usually, Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 for tips. A private donation allows for a much greater payday for information in the March 8 robbery of Fort Sill National Bank.

According to police, the suspects are two black males. Both were reported to be wearing black clothes and ski masks at the time of the holdup. They fled the scene in a brown- or rust-colored Lexus.

Anyone having information on this case should call the Fayetteville/ Cumberland Crime Stoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
