Masked Bank Robber Can Run, But Can't Hide

ATLANTA -- For some criminals, it's all in the preparation.

The man who robbed a Buckhead bank Tuesday morning had a gun and a mask, but he didn't put the mask on until he got to the bank's lobby, and he didn't count on his face being captured by a camera hidden in a lobby ATM machine.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Lamkin is hoping someone will recognize the man in the photo from the Chase Bank on Piedmont Avenue between Lenox and Peachtree Roads. That's in the same shopping center as the Kroger and Starbucks across from Tower Place.

The suspect is described as a black male in his late 30's to late 40's who is between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing prescription eye glasses, a black wool cap, a white t-shirt, blue jeans and a porcelain doll-like mask during the robbery. He also had scruffy facial hair and a silver semi-automatic handgun.

Anyone with information is asked to the call the FBI Atlanta Field Office at (404) 679-9000.
