SALLISAW, OK -- The FBI is looking for a serial bank robbery suspect who entered a Sallisaw bank Thursday afternoon, handed a teller a note and left the bank on foot.

The man is believed to be the same man which robbed a Poteau bank on April 20 and a McAlester bank on March 27.

Thursday's robbery was at the National Bank of Sallisaw at 1000 S. Kerr Boulevard.

The suspect is described as 50 to 60-years old, medium build, wearing a two tone tan and green jacket, dark shirt and a camouflage ball cap.

The FBI has released several surveillance photographs in hope someone will recognize the suspect.

If anyone has any information regarding the robbery, please contact the FBI at 405-687-7500. A reward of up to $2000 is being offered by the Oklahoma Bankers Association.
