Tucson police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man suspected of robbing three banks this week. Surveillance footage shows he wore clown accessories in two of the robberies.
The man is described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with brown hair, blue eyes (possibly contact lenses) and wearing a long, bushy, blond wig. He wore a green coat, a multicolored tie and dark pants in two bank heists yesterday, said Sgt. Marco Borboa, a Tucson police spokesman.
In yesterday’s first robbery, at 3:06 p.m., the man went into DM Federal Credit Union, 8465 E. Broadway, threatened the manager and demanded money, Borboa said.
Less than an hour later, the same man robbed the Wells Fargo branch at 5535 E. 22nd St., Borboa said.
The first robbery was Wednesday morning at 9:15 at Wells Fargo, 555 N. Wilmot Road. In that case, Borboa said, a red dye pack that is part of the bank’s security system exploded and marked the stolen money.
Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
