FBI: Man With Long Island Ties Wanted For Bank Robberies
MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The FBI has put out an alert for a bank robbery suspect with ties to Long Island.
The FBI says Luis Alomar is wanted for at least 20 robberies along the eastern seaboard in places including New York, New Jersey and Delaware.
Alomar, who speaks Spanish, has ties to the Mastic and Shirley areas of Long Island. He also is believed to have ties to southern Florida, specifically Palm Beach County, Kissimmee, and Osceola County.
There is a federal arrest warrant for him for a holdup in Delaware.
In most cases, authorities said he hands a note to the teller indicating he is carrying a weapon and in some cases, a weapon is displayed. The FBI says he normally demands large bills.
The FBI says the 37-year-old man should be considered armed and dangerous. Authorities said he has a large mole on his right forehead and tattoos on his right arm and right leg.
Anyone with information is asked to call the New York FBI office at 212-384-1000. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
