FBI looks for ‘polite' bank robber in Duluth

He pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun.

The man jumped the counter and then began putting money into a black plastic bag.

The robber headed to the door.

“Thank you,” he said to the employees, before leaving.

The FBI is looking for the polite robber and think he may be connected with another robbery, this time at a Wachovia in Stone Mountain.

On Friday, authorities said he entered the Wachovia Bank on 3072 Old Norcross Road, around 10:23 a.m. After taking the money, the man left in an early 1990s Acura Legend that is either black or gray, the FBI said.

Brian Lamkin, special agent in charge at FBI’s offices in Atlanta, said in a news release that the Wachovia bank robbery in Stone Mountain happened on August 25 last year. A man entered the bank at 1815 Rockbridge Road and robbed it “in a similar manner,” the news release said.

The robber is described as black with a medium to dark complexion. The man approximately 20 or 30 years old, the FBI said. He is about 6 feet tall and weights about 160 to 170 lbs and has a medium build.

He was wearing a white Polo shirt with a blue collar and trim, blue jeans and white sneakers, as well as a blue New York Yankees baseball cap, the FBI said.
