The FBI and APD say someone robbed the Bank of the West at 5228 Central Ave SW on Monday.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, heavy set, middle-aged to older.

Witnesses say he wore a green plaid, long-sleeve shirt, a tan, wide-brimmed hat, clear glasses and a bushy black beard that may have been a fake.

The suspect entered the bank at approximately 12:15 p.m. He handed a teller a demand note that implied the suspect had a gun.

The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

He was last seen heading south on 53rd Street in a beige car with an Oakland Raiders bumper sticker on it. Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call the Albuquerque FBI at 505-889-1300.
