Suspect sought in bank heist


Au­thor­it­ies are search­ing for a man who robbed a Fox Chase bank on Monday morn­ing.

The sus­pect entered the Vist Fin­an­cial branch at 8000 Ver­ree Road at about 11:30 a.m., presen­ted a threat­en­ing de­mand note to a tell­er, ob­tained an un­dis­closed amount of cash and fled, pos­sibly in a white, full-size van with roof lad­ders, the FBI said.

The sus­pect was de­scribed as black, in his late 30s, 5 feet 7 inches or 5 feet 8 inches tall, stocky and with a dark com­plex­ion and thick beard. He wore a black base­ball cap with a red brim and logo on the front, a black jack­et, dark gray pants with rolled-up legs and a red rag or tow­el in his back pock­et.

He is con­sidered armed and dan­ger­ous. Call the FBI at 215-418-4000 to re­port in­form­a­tion about the crime. There may be a re­ward for in­form­a­tion lead­ing to his cap­ture. Callers may re­main an­onym­ous. ••
