Wells Fargo is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person known as "the Froggy Robber" who robbed Wells Fargo bank branches in Vancouver on Feb. 12, Raleigh Hills on Jan. 11 and Wilsonville on Dec. 27.
The funds are in addition to the reward of up to $10,000 the FBI is also offering for information about the suspect, who the FBI believes also robbed two other banks in the region since last October.
According to the FBI, witnesses have described the suspect as a clean shaven Hispanic man, approximately 20-40 years old, 5'1'- 5'5" in height and weighing 130-160 lbs. The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information concerning any of the robberies should call their local police department or FBI office at (503) 224-4181.
Wells Fargo and the FBI will decide who is entitled to a reward and in what amount, based primarily upon an evaluation of the value of the information provided. If there are multiple claimants, the reward will be shared in amounts determined by Wells Fargo and the FBI.
"We have found rewards are an effective way to help law enforcement identify bank robbers," said Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Unger. "The message we are sending to criminals is that if you rob a Wells Fargo bank, we will work with law enforcement agencies to relentlessly pursue and prosecute you."
