FBI seeks information
The FBI in Oregon is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a bank robbery suspect who investigators have nicknamed "Froggy Robber." This suspect earned his nickname because in each of the four bank robberies he is suspected of committing he jumps over the teller counter to get to the cash, including a bank in Canby last October.
In each of the robberies, the man used a knife to threaten the bank employees as well.
The robberies include:
> Oct. 19, 2017 at 10:15 a.m. - Columbia Bank, 1455 SE First Ave. in Canby.
- Wearing a black Columbia raincoat with a bright orange Oregon State Beavers' logo on the front and the word "Columbia" on the left sleeve. Also wearing a black cap.
> Nov. 27, 2017 at 11:06 a.m. - Albina Community Bank, 2002 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Portland.
- Wearing a light gray sweatshirt with a black baseball cap, grey jeans, white & black tennis shoes, and a black backpack
> Dec. 27, 2017 at 11 a.m. - Wells Fargo Bank, 8699 SW Main Street, Wilsonville.
- Wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a black beanie underneath the hood and a black backpack covered in elastic cords
> Jan. 11, 2018 at 10 a.m. - Wells Fargo Bank, 6785 Beaverton Hillsdale Highway, Beaverton.
- Wearing a black Oregon State Beaver's jacket and black & white tennis shoes.
Witnesses describe the robber as an Hispanic man, aged 20 to mid-30s, height between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-7, weighing about 150 pounds.
