Authorities believe the man wanted for a Tuesday morning bank robbery in the Norcross area is the same one who pulled off robberies at two other banks in the past week.
Gwinnett Police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith said detectives and the FBI think the man, who threatened a teller with a hand grenade at a Well Fargo branch on Jimmy Carter Boulevard also robbed Wells Fargo locations in Buckhead and Doraville.
The FBI provided additional surveillance photos from those crimes late Tuesday afternoon.
According to an email from Gwinnett’s Smith, the first robbery happened Aug. 27 in Doraville, during which he wore a black button-up shirt and sunglasses. The second happened in Buckhead on Aug. 29. The suspect wore a black T-shirt and black-and-yellow baseball cap.
The man used the hand grenade for the first time in the Norcross robbery, according to Smith. In that robbery, he wore a black button-up shirt, blue jeans, sunglasses and a straw fedora.
Smith said the man — described as a 6-foot-5, black male with a thin build — is considered armed and dangerous.
Wells Fargo is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the robber. Anyone with information should contact Gwinnett County Police Robbery Unit detectives at 770-513-5300 or call Crime Stoppers at 404-557-TIPS (8477).
