James E. Finch, Special Agent in Charge of the Oklahoma City Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced the robbery of the IBC Bank, 2301 N. Portland, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
At approximately 9:20 a.m. a black male entered the bank with weapon drawn. The subject was yelling “put your hands up”…“give me all the money” and “hurry up”. He approached the teller counter and demanded money from all three tellers. The tellers complied and the money was placed in a plastic grocery bag.
As the subject hurriedly turned to leave, a portion of the money fell from the bag onto the floor in front of the teller counter. The subject departed with an undisclosed amount of money.
The subject was observed to enter a black 4-door Honda Accord and depart the bank parking lot, west on 22nd Street.
This vehicle, which was reported stolen, was abandoned by the subject and recovered by authorities approximately a block away from the bank. The subject is believed to have been picked up by an accomplice at that location. No one was injured in the robbery.
Surveillance photos and witness descriptions depict the subject as follows:
Black male, early 20’s, 6’4”- 6’5”, thin build, wearing a black hoodie jacket, designer jeans, dark gloves, carrying a small black revolver.
The robbery is being investigated by the FBI and the Oklahoma City Police Department. The method and subject description in today’s robbery is similar to that in recent bank robberies in Bethany, Warr Acres, and Moore.
Anyone with information regarding this robbery should contact the FBI at (405) 290-7770 (24 hour number). You may remain anonymous.
The Oklahoma Banker’s Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and/or conviction of anyone robbing a member bank.
