Lilburn police searching for bank robbery suspect

LILBURN -- Police are asking for help identifying the man who robbed a Lilburn Wells Fargo Friday morning, the second bank robbery in Gwinnett in a matter of days.

Lilburn police Capt. Ben Haynes said the suspect in Friday's robbery -- described as a large-framed, dark-skinned black male between 30 and 40 years old and about 6 feet tall -- entered the Wells Fargo at 5505 Lawrenceville Highway at about 10:35 a.m. Seen in surveillance photos wearing a brown leather jacket, black long-sleeved shirt and black stocking cap, the suspect reportedly passed a note demanding money to a teller.

The teller turned over an undisclosed amount of money, as well as a red dye pack that successfully deployed, Haynes said.

As a result, the suspect may have red dye stains on his clothes or injuries. He was last seen leaving the bank in the direction of the city of Tucker in a gray, "newer model" pickup truck.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lilburn police Sr. Investigator Kim Banks at 770-638-2220.

On Wednesday, another man allegedly robbed the RBC Centura Bank at 1052 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Suwanee. Suwanee police described that suspect as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, 6 feet tall and dressed in business attire.

Anyone with information in that case is asked to call Suwanee police Det. Joe Carter at 770-945-8995 or by email at jcarter@suwanee.com.
