FBI: Same Man Wanted In Bertie And Washington County Bank Robberies

The Charlotte Division of the FBI says the man seen on surveillance video robbing the RBC bank in Colerain on January 27, is the same man seen robbing the East Carolina Bank in Creswell on January 6.

In both robberies the suspect was armed with a silver revolver. He is described as a black male, 20-30 years old, approximately 6’, 175-200 lbs. He wore a dark colored cap with what appears to be fake dreadlocks, according to a release from the Charlotte Division of the FBI.

The getaway car is believed to be a white Toyota Corrola or Camry and it is missing a hubcap. There is no description available on the person driving the getaway car.
