PHOENIX - The FBI is asking for the public’s help identifying three men who are accused of robbing multiple banks across the Valley.
Authorities say on Oct. 27, the group nicknamed the “High Noon Bandits,” are accused of three banks:
Oct. 27: First Bank, 19th and Glendale avenues
Nov. 24: Desert Schools Federal Credit Union, Thunderbird Road and 7th Street
Dec. 1: Arizona Federal Credit Union, 55th and Northern avenues
Desert School’s Federal Credit Union is offering a $10,000 for information leading to their arrest.
The group has been nicknamed the “High Noon Bandits” because each robbery has occurred around noon and a revolver-style handgun was used.
During at least one of the robberies a shot was fired, officials said.
Based on surveillance photos, the suspects are believed to be in their 20s or 30s, nearly 6’0” and average build. They’ve worn hooded sweatshirts and bandanas over their faces during the robberies.
The suspects are considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the FBI at 623-4661999 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
