Original Story

ARDMORE, Okla. (KFOR) – A man robbed an Oklahoma bank while wearing a long, red wig, and FBI investigators are asking the public for help identifying him.

The wigged suspect robbed American National Bank, 1901 N. Commerce St., in Ardmore at approximately 3:16 p.m. Friday.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 5’6″ to 5’7″ tall. He wore a long, red wig, red face mask, dark long-sleeve shirt with a gold reindeer image on its front, dark pants and sunglasses on his forehead during the robbery, according to FBI officials.

The suspect handed a note demanding money to a bank teller.

The teller surrendered an undisclosed amount of cash to the suspect, who then fled the bank.

The suspect is believed to have taken off the wig and dark shirt after the robbery. He was seen wearing a white T-shirt and green baseball cap at a Casey’s Convenience Store nearby.

He is believed to be driving a red pickup truck that has a toolbox in its bed. The pickup appears in the below surveillance photo.
