Robert E. Casey Jr., special agent in charge, Dallas, FBI, has announced a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the Dec. 3 robbery of the Bank of America located at 330 West Irving Blvd., Irving.

Bank of America, along with Wells Fargo Bank, and in conjunction with the Texas Bankers Foundation, announced they were offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for the offense. 

The robbers of the Bank of America in Irving are also suspects in three other robberies in 2010: a Jan. 6 robbery at Resource One Credit Union at 755 N. Highway 67, Cedar Hill; a Jan. 28 robbery at Bank of America at 156 West Belt Line Road, Cedar Hill; and a July 16 robbery at Bank of America at 14999 Preston Road, Dallas. 

Authorities believe the robbers are possibly responsible for six other bank robberies around DFW in recent months.

“This two-man robbery team is known for taking over banks during their robbery attempts and corralling bank employees into the restrooms of the bank at the conclusion of their robberies,” an FBI press release reads.

The two robbers are described as:

• Robber 1 – Male; black or Hispanic; 16-25 years old; 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall; weighing 140-160 pounds.

• Robber 2 – Male; black or Hispanic; 16-25 years old; 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 9 inches tall; weighing 140-160 pounds.

The robbers wear baggy blue jeans, dark hooded sweatshirts, masks and black hooded sweatshirts.

The robbers were seen leaving the Bank of America robbery in a black sedan with tinted windows.

In all incidents the robbers have been armed with handguns and should be considered armed and dangerous.  

The robberies are being investigated jointly by the FBI and the Dallas, Cedar Hill and Irving police departments.   

Anyone recognizing the robbers or having information about their whereabouts should call the Dallas FBI Office at 972-559-5000 or their local police agency.
