Surveillance footage of a suspect in the Anthony Westbrook murder was taken at the Pine Avenue branch of SB&T.
ALBANY — Sometime after the gunshot murder of 52-year-old Anthony Westbrook on April 4, a man or woman wearing a full-head, black mask used Westbrook’s credit card at an ATM, according to Albany Police Department officials.
Police investigators released pictures taken from an SB&T Bank surveillance camera at its 411 Pine Ave. branch. The bank is less than a quarter-mile west of the Albany-Dougherty Judicial Building.
The pictures of “a person of interest” show a person with long, manicured fingernails, shaped eyebrows and a slight overbite. Investigators said that although the person is masked, people should look at the nails, lips, mouth and eyes for indications of the person’s identity.
Police identified the vehicle in the picture driven by the masked person as a gold Kia Rondo belonging to Westbrook, whose nude body was found in the woods off the 1800 block of Westtown Road.
The Kia was found at about 5 p.m. April 6 at 1490 Palmyra Road, 4 miles from where the body was found and 1.5 miles from the SB&T Bank downtown.
The investigation remains a priority with investigators. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477) or investigations at (229) 431-3288. The Spanish-speaking APD-COP Tip Line is (229) 434-2677.
