Milwaukee man sought in connection with 7 bank robberies since Oct.
MILWAUKEE — The FBI asked for the public’s help in locating a Milwaukee man wanted in connection with seven bank robberies over the last four months.
The FBI Milwaukee Division said Wednesday that agents are looking for 29-year-old Richard Gray, who the Milwaukee Area Violent Crime Task Force believes was involved in bank robberies between Oct. 30 and last Friday.
Gray was charged Monday by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office with robbery of a financial institution in connection with the Oct. 30 robbery of Seaway Bank and Trust on West Fond Du Lac Avenue in Milwaukee. A warrant was also issued for Gray’s arrest.
The FBI said Gray is believed to be in Milwaukee somewhere on the near north side.
Gray is black, 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 215 pounds. He has multiple tattoos on his arms and hands.
In addition to the Oct. 30 robbery that Gray’s been charged with, the task force believes Gray might be involved in other robberies including at Mitchell Street Bank on Oct. 31, at Seaway Bank on West Fond du Lac Avenue again on Jan. 26 and at BMO Harris on North MLK Drive on Jan. 30.
The task force believes that Gray might have robbed two banks on Friday: Chase Bank on West Capitol Drive and BMO Harris on North MLK Drive. The most recent robbery Gray may be involved in was at TCF Bank inside Pick ‘n Save on North 35th Street on Friday, according to the report.
Police said Gray is considered to be armed and dangerous, and he should not be approached. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 414-276-4684.
