Henderson, Nev. – A suspect with a penchant for wearing hats during his crimes attempted to rob a Wells Fargo branch late last week marking the third bank robbery attributed to the same suspect in three months.
Henderson Police are seeking the public’s help to identify the suspect, who entered the bank branch, located at 213 S. Stephanie St., about 3:50 p.m. Friday. The suspect approached one of the tellers and handed her a note demanding money. The teller did not comply with the demand but instead went to the floor. The suspect eventually left the bank without any cash.
The suspect indicated in the note he had a gun; however, no weapon was shown and no one was injured during the robbery attempt.
The same suspect is believed to be the man who robbed the Chase Bank branch at 10624 S. Eastern Ave. on September 4 and the Chase Bank branch located at 637 N. Stephanie St. on October 7.
In both earlier cases he entered the bank wearing a fedora pulled down to the sunglasses he was wearing. He approached the teller with a note demanding money. In both cases he was given an undisclosed amount of cash and then he fled the bank.
The suspect is described as a while male, 25 to 30 years old, 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 11 inches tall weighing about 160 to 180 pounds. In the most recent robbery he was wearing a maroon colored long sleeve button up shirt, dark sunglasses and a straw cowboy hat.
Photographs of the suspect taken by bank surveillance cameras during each of the robberies are attached.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at (702) 267-4750 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or visit crimestoppersofnv.com. Tips directly leading to an arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.
