FBI Dallas is asking for the public’s assistance as they work to identify the person responsible for a bank robbery in Denton.

The Wells Fargo Bank of Denton is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that will help lead to the identification of the suspect in the November 10 bank robbery. The FBI has no involvement in the administration of this reward or any of its governing terms or conditions.

The November robbery occurred at 601 West University Drive in Denton. A male suspect dressed in black parked a red Dodge Challenger in front of the bank. The suspect walked inside the bank and waited in the teller line. He wore gloves, a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head, and goggles or a mask.

A teller approached the suspect, and then he told the teller to take him to the bank’s vault. He then took cash money from the vault and placed it into a black duffel bag, whereupon he left the bank. The suspect got back into the same vehicle he arrived in and exited the parking lot at a high rate of speed.

The FBI stated that the robber had a black semi-automatic handgun. The suspect should be regarded as armed and dangerous.

The suspect was described as a male, approximately 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall. He is said to be of a slender build.

If you have any information concerning this case, call the FBI Dallas Division at (972) 559-5000.

Surveillance camera photos of the suspect and his car are available on the FBI Dallas website.

The City of Dallas has also struggled with crime. Dallas has more crime per capita than hotspots like Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and New York, according to data from the FBI’s UCR database.
