Wells Fargo offers $5K reward for info on attempted robbery suspect

A reward is being offered to the public to aid Alpharetta police and the FBI with their investigation of a recent attempted bank robbery.

Alpharetta police recently announced that Wells Fargo bank will offer a $5,000 reward to anyone who can provide authorities with information leading to the arrest of a male suspect accused of trying to rob a branch at 5750 North Point Parkway.

On Oct. 3, the man entered the Wells Fargo branch around 11:50 a.m. with his face wrapped and pulled a gun on one of the bank tellers, saying "give me all of the hundreds," according to police.

The suspect, however, became nervous and could not point the gun and hold the shirt around his face. As a result, he fled the bank on foot without any money, police said.

Police and K-9 units searched the area for the suspect but could not find him. Authorities described the man as wearing jeans, a long-sleeve dark shirt, with a light-colored T-shirt covering his face.

Residents can call Alpharetta police’s anonymous tip line at 678-297-6307.
