FBI Offering Reward In Tulsa Bank Robbery
TULSA, Oklahoma -- The FBI is offering a reward in a violent Tulsa bank robbery.
The agency will pay up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification and capture of three suspects in the takeover robbery of the Tulsa Municipal Employees Credit Union on September 16, 2011.
Police say three black males, all wearing ski masks, entered the Credit Union at 17th and Phoenix shortly after 11 a.m.
