RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A reward of up to $10,000 has been offered by the FBI’s Richmond Division for information leading to the conviction of a suspect who robbed the Call Federal Credit Union in Midlothian at gunpoint in May. 

An unknown man walked into the Call Federal Credit Union, in the 3600 block of Call Federal Drive, on May 20 and approached the teller. The man demanded money from the teller after giving them “a threatening note,” a release from the FBI’s Richmond Division. 

A reward of up to $10,000 has been offered by the FBI’s Richmond Division for information leading to the conviction of a suspect who robbed the Call Federal Credit Union in Midlothian at gunpoint in May. FBI provided 8News with surveillance photos from the scene.

Eventually, the man took out a handgun and the people in the bank were ordered to the floor. The suspect moved the customers and employees to the back of the bank and took all of their cell phones. He demanded that the bank manager give him more money, which he put in his backpack. 

The suspect is described as a black male with a slender build, between 27 to 33-years-old and 6-feet-tall, the FBI said. The man is believed to be roughly 170 pounds and had short braids and a “scruffy beard.” 

During the robbery, the suspect was wearing a gray long-sleeved shirt, a gray “bucket-style” hat and reflective sunglasses. He was also wearing a yellow and orange reflective vest with blue jeans and black shoes. 

The suspect, who is still believed to be armed and dangerous, took out a black and silver semi-automatic handgun, according to authorities.
