Sur­veil­lance im­age of the sus­pect

The Phil­adelphia of­fice of the FBI is still try­ing to identi­fy a man who at­temp­ted to rob a Bank of Amer­ica branch in the North­east on May 24 and has re­leased new im­ages of the wanted man.

The crime oc­curred at about 11:35 a.m. at 2439 Welsh Road. The rob­ber was de­scribed as white, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and thin. He had a blond mus­tache, goat­ee beard and tat­toos on his neck. One of the neck tat­toos de­pic­ted the words, “The Love,” fol­lowed by un­deter­mined word­ing, the FBI said.

The same man is a sus­pect in the May 18 rob­bery of Cit­izens Bank at 2702 Kirk­bride St. in Brides­burg. The North­east Times pub­lished pho­tos of the sus­pect in May 29 edi­tions. Call the FBI at 215-418-4000 to re­port in­form­a­tion about the case. ••
