OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - An Oklahoma City bank was robbed Tuesday morning. The FBI says the man who robbed the bank may be the same person who was involved in a Tulsa bank robbery.

Oklahoma City police say BancFirst located at 809 Cornell Parkway was robbed shortly after 9:00 a.m.

The same individual is believed to be responsible for the January 22 robbery of Bank of America located at 5101 S. Sheridan in Tulsa.

In both robberies, the man fled in a green Dodge Minivan, possibly a Caravan model. In the Tulsa robbery, the vehicle had a Missouri license tag. The individual responsible for the OKC robbery may be passing $2 bills or mutilated money received from the robbery.

The robber was described as a white male, 5'8" tall, late 30's to mid-40's, bald on top with short hair on the sides, medium build, wearing prescription glasses with a black wired frame, black jacket with a gray shirt underneath and blue jeans.

A reward of up to $2000 is being offered by the Oklahoma Bankers Association for anyone with information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for robbing a member bank.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (405) 290-7770.

The investigation is being conducted by the Oklahoma City Police Department and the FBI.
