Bankrobber Armed To Teeth In Westchester Heist



    (Published Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011)

    The FBI released video Tuesday of a bank robber who used an assault rifle and a handgun to rob a Chase bank in a quiet Westchester suburb. 

    The tape shows the gunman crisscrossing the bank lobby, his weapon pointed at tellers behind the counter at the branch in Hastings-on-Hudson.
    The hold-up happened back on December 17 and the FBI hopes video of the masked suspect helps them get a tip.  "This is a very dangerous situation," said FBI New York spokesman Richard Kolko

    "He needs to be caught right away."
    The FBI did release a still photo to the media last month but the gunman remains on the loose.  He is described as a black male, in his 20's, 5'9-6'0 feet tall who was wearing a green camouflage jacket and orange goggles. 

    The suspect made off with thousands in cash.  No one was hurt in the incident.  The FBI asks anyone with information to call 212-384-1000. 

    All calls are confidential and there is a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.
