Santo Domingo.- The U.S. Embassy in the Dominican Republic has issued an alert through DT to the Dominican diaspora in New York to assist in the apprehension of a serial bank robber who’s wanted by the authorities for at least eight armed robberies in New York City and to protect people from the alleged assailant.

“Your publication of this story could even create an eventual connection to someone who may know be able to identify the individual. His moniker is “Snub-Nosed Bandit” for his use of a silver, snub-nosed revolver, caught on film and video footage of several of the robberies that you can view yourself on the link below,” the statement sent Saturday to DT says.

The US Embassy said among the armed robberies, multiple locations have significant pockets of Dominicans and/or Dominican-American populations.

It also cites the Website of the FBI: "An unknown male suspect, known as the Snub-Nosed Bandit is wanted for at least eight armed robberies in New York:

 On March 2, 2012, the Apple Bank located at 414 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, was robbed; On February 26, 2012, the 7-Eleven convenience store located at 107-24 Corona Avenue, Corona, Queens, was robbed; On February 12, 2012, the Papa John’s Pizza store located at 43-04 National Avenue, Corona, Queens, was robbed and a shot was fired.”

It said that on January 28, 2012, the Chase Bank located at 205-19 Hillside Avenue, Hollis, Queens, was robbed; On January 6, 2012, the Sovereign Bank located at 75-15 31st Avenue, East Elmhurst, was robbed; On December 7, 2011, the HSBC Bank located at 22-15 43rd Avenue, Queens, was robbed and a shot was fired; On October 18, 2011, the Capital One Bank located at 185 Broadway, Brooklyn, was robbed; On September 25, 2011, the Dunkin Donuts located at 356 McGuiness Blvd., Brooklyn, was robbed and a shot was fired.”

“This individual is described as a Black or Hispanic male, approximately 35 years old, between 5'5" and 5'7", and 150 to 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing glasses and carrying a silver revolver. The suspect may speak Spanish and/or be of Dominican background,” the emailed statement said.

Humor side: ohhvictor, Pepe Goico would not stoop so low as to wear a hoody or brandish a pistol. He is a big leaguer, he robs people of their confidence in government.

Serious side: Meanwhile, to get back to the article objective, if a reader has a lead, help the citizens and the Dominican community in NYC catch the pictured slime.

Ms. Viceky the only pictures in the entire History of the Dominican Republic of International Drug Dealers and one of our presidents are the ones Lie-onel Fernandez took with Arturo Del Tiempo Marquez and his son. Both arrested in Spain for importing drugs from DR.

You remember Arturo Del Tiempo Marquez he is the guy Lie-onel Fernandez “loaned” $ 36,000,000 million US dollars to build the Narco Tower Atiemar. The same Arturo Del Tiempo Marquez who the Spanish government said had no entrepreneurial history to justify a loan of that magnitude.

The most famous of those pictures is also the MOST DISGRACEFUL one he took with them in the National Palace in front of the portrait of one of our Founding Fathers Juan Pablo Duarte.

It went viral all over the internet, I am sure the FBI and the DEA have it their files as evidence should they decide to prosecute and send the 82 Airborne to come to pick up Lie-onel and the rest of the Narco-PLD for a stay at the Noriega Hilton in Miami!

@josean the article says "or" and "and/or" when describing the suspect. It also says "may be" when referring to the suspect as Spanish speaker "and/or" of Dominican background. Need to read a little more carefully before you jump to conclusions.

@ Danny00: Re: "better he robbs the drug dealers then the banks, he will get less time in doing so.

LMAO! Yeah... and he'd probably get more money too. He's a serial bank robber because they just don't seem to have enough cash on hand. LOL.
