Lovell Heights bank robbed
FBI seeks black suspect


The FBI and local law enforcement agencies are looking for the individual who robbed the Home Federal Bank in Lovell Heights.

R. Joe Clark, Special Agent in Charge of the Knoxville Division of the FBI, Chief Sterling P. Owen IV of the Knoxville Police Department and Sheriff Tim Hutchison of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individual who robbed the bank, located at 10396 Kingston Pike in Knoxville, Friday, Oct. 21.


The FBI reported that witnesses stated that at about 10 a.m., a black male, brandishing a silver and black semi-automatic handgun, entered the bank. He was wearing a black toboggan, a black hooded sweatshirt, which zipped in front, a surgical mask and black-rimmed glasses. The robber was estimated to be 6-foot-3-inches tall with a slim/athletic build.

Pointing his handgun, he ordered employees and customers into the safety-deposit box area of the bank. The robber took an undetermined amount of money and left the bank heading south. A substantial portion of the money was later recovered in a nearby trash dumpster.

Video surveillance photographs of the robber were released to aid in the apprehension of this individual.

The FBI advises the public not to approach this individual, but to provide any information on him to the FBI at 865-544-3701, or the Knoxville Police Department at 865-215-7000.
