Police say they have identified a man suspected in three local bank robberies and are asking for help finding him.
A warrant for the arrest of William Lee Smith, 36, of Tucson was obtained by the Tucson Police Department after he was identified through bank surveillance photographs, said Sgt Marco Borboa, a TPD spokesman.
After the photos were released to the media, someone recognized Smith and called police, Borboa said.
Smith is wanted in connection with the robberies of Wells Fargo Bank, 4036 N. First Ave., on Sept. 15 and Bank One, 2001 E. Irvington Road, Sept. 17.
Police say Smith was not armed during the robberies. They have not disclosed the amount taken in any of the robberies.
Smith is believed to be associated with a champagne-colored 1990s import station wagon.
Anyone with information concerning Smith or the robberies are asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
Surveillance photos of Smith can be seen on the TPD Web site: www.ci.tucson.az.us/police
