FBI seeks man who wore hard hat, safety vest during armed robbery at Amarillo bank

The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man who was wearing a construction hard hat and bright safety vest when he robbed a Wells Fargo Bank late last year in Amarillo.


A man armed with a small handgun entered the Wells Fargo at 34th Avenue and Bell Street on Nov. 13, demanding money and firing one shot into the ceiling, according to a news release from the FBI in Dallas. The robber obtained an undisclosed amount of money and left the bank on foot.

The man, who has not been identified, is considered to be armed and dangerous. He’s described as Hispanic, standing about 6 feet in height and weighing 200 to 220 pounds.

The robber was wearing dark sunglasses, a white construction hard hat and a green safety vest. He was also wearing a dark zip-up hoodie with a white zipper and dark jeans. He had a glove on his left hand but did not have a glove on his right hand. He may have a tattoo on the top of his right wrist.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI Amarillo Resident Agency at 806-376-6395 or the FBI Dallas Field Office at 972-559-5000.
