Reward increased for bank robber to $30,000
The reward for a serial bank robber operating in the Portland metro area has been increased to $30,000 from an initial reward of $10,000.
The Oregon Financial Institutions Security Task Force has added up to $10,000 to the $10,000 each from the FBI and Wells Fargo for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a suspect that hit the Wilsonville Wells Fargo Dec. 27.
Dubbed "Froggy Robber" for his habit of leaping over teller's counters, the suspect — described as a Hispanic man in his 20-30s, height 5'3" to 5'5", weight 130-160 pounds — is responsible for six bank robberies in Oregon and southwest Washington.
In each case the suspect approached the teller, jumped over and threatened the teller with a knife. The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about the suspected robber's identity or location is asked to call the FBI in Portland at (503) 224-4181 or submit a tip through the online portal at www.fbi.gov/tips. .
