PCSD looks for person of interest in May 20 armed robbery

TUCSON – Pima County Sheriff’s Department needs your help in identifying a person of interest that may have information about a recent bank robbery.

On May 20, at the National Bank of Arizona near River Road and La Cholla Boulevard. A man showed the teller a gun and demanded large bills that he stuffed into a large manila envelope. Detectives said he told the teller as he showed the gun, “You know what this is, give me the money.” He left and was seen getting into a white minivan.

Four days before at almost the exact time of the bank robbery, another man was seen walking into the bank and asked for penny wraps.

A detective with the robbery assault unit told News 4 Tucson as they were conducting their investigation one of the bank employees told them about this particular man and saw him get into a white minivan.

Detectives pulled videos from surrounding areas and they said it was the same van the bank robber got into.

Surveillance cameras show it was a white minivan, early 2000 model with damage to the front quarter panel.

The person of interest has a tattoo on his left forearm.

Detectives said the man who robbed the bank is a serial bank robber. Other law enforcement agencies are working with the sheriff’s department because apparently, he has robbed banks in their areas.

The person of interest is described as a white male, with a gray goatee, wearing a black hat with an Assassins Creed logo on it. Detectives said he had a white short sleeve button down shirt, dark shorts, black style combat boots.

He is considered a person of interest.

Detectives are still looking for the armed bank robber. Deputy Dan Jelineo told News 4 Tucson he needs to be off the streets. They are concerned it is only a matter of time is someone does not give him what he wants he may use the gun.

If you have any information you are urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
