On August 2nd, 2012, a man burst into a Citibank in the Fort Lauderdale area and demanded
the cash in the room. In a classic bank robbery attempt, the man demanded
money from a flustered employee, who handed him an unknown amount of cash.
The man fled the scene with the money in hand and no one was injured at
the bank. The bank robber was caught on a low-quality surveillance camera,
but has yet to be found.
According to the FBI report, the robber is about six-feet tall and is mostly
bald. On the day of the robbery he was wearing a white, shirt-sleeved,
buttoned-down shirt that had two pockets. He was also wearing dark pants
and had sunglasses propped on his head. Because he did not hide his face
with a mask, one might assume that it would be easy to find this man.
Yet the low, fuzzy pixilation on the security camera has left the FBI
with a much obscured image of the offender.
The FBI is urging local residents to contact their security center with
any information about the identity or location of the bank robber. While
this may help to put the guilty behind bars, it also puts out the danger
of a false arrest. There are dozens of bald six-foot-tall men in Fort
Lauderdale who may be suspected of a crime that they never committed.
