On September 11, 2015, at approximately 2:20 p.m., an unknown subject robbed the Wells Fargo Bank located at 2940 West Valencia Road in Tucson, Arizona.

The unknown suspect initially entered the Safeway store, where the Wells Fargo Bank is located, at approximately 1:28 p.m. He walked around the inside of the store, seemingly observing the teller booths, then left the store.

At approximately 2:20 p.m., the suspect re-entered through the east entrance of the store, approached the western-most teller bay, and demanded 100s, 50s, and 20s while threatening to pull his gun out. His hand was positioned under his shirt, where the victim teller noticed the outline of a square-shaped object. The teller then gave money to the unknown suspect.

The unknown suspect then exited the Safeway through the western-most entrance, which was out of view of the teller.

On July 23, 2016, at approximately 11:40 a.m., the same unknown subject robbed the same Wells Fargo Bank location.

The suspect approached the teller counter and demanded money. The suspect gestured like he had a gun. The teller gave the suspect money and the suspect exited through the main south-facing entrance.
