ALBANY — The FBI is still looking for the brazen bandit who robbed the People’s Bank at 701 North Westover Boulevard on Friday.

No injuries were reported in the holdup.

The FBI’s Atlanta office has released security camera images and is asking anyone who spotted the 2000 to mid-2000s white Chevrolet Impala with a horseshoe decal in its back window or the suspect to contact that office.

The suspect is a black male, about 6 feet tall, who entered the bank and gave the teller a note demanding money. He was wearing a green T-shirt and a green Army cap. Authorities did not know whether the bandit, who left with an undisclosed amount of money in a case, was armed.

Friday’s hold-up came on the heels of a noon-hour Wednesday robbery of the DOCO Credit Union at 2101 Rosebrier Ave. In that robbery, an unidentified black male wearing a dark U.S. Air Force cap, green T-shirt and khaki pants entered the credit union and handed the teller a note demanding money. The robber claimed in his note that he was armed with a gun.

He was wearing a light-colored bracelet on his left wrist, a dark-colored watch on his right wrist and white tennis shoes. That bandit left on foot and was last seen in the park area behind the Tallulah branch of the public library.

A spokesman for the FBI office in Atlanta said Friday that investigators did not believe the two hold-ups were related.

Authorities are asking anyone who recognizes either individual or the vehicle used by the second robber to contact the APD or the FBI Atlanta field office at (404) 679-9000.
