FBI and KCSO search for man who may have robbed three area banks


The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Knox County Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the man who robbed a Knoxville bank Friday, June 20.

At 3:30 p.m., Friday afternoon, a man entered the BB&T at 11140 Kingston Pike in Farragut. He demanded money, made verbal threats and jumped over the counter.

After receiving an undetermined amount of money, the robber left the bank.

Witnesses described the man as a white male, in his mid-20s, 5-foot-6-inches to 5-foot-8-inches tall, medium-to-thin build, wearing a dark hooded jacket, dark pants and tan work boots.

He appeared to have several days’ growth of facial hair but no actual beard or mustache. He was seen driving off in a white Toyota Solara described as possibly having paper taped over the license plate. The car had a Fox Toyota sticker on it.

Authorities believe he is the same man who robbed that bank May 2, as well as the nearby Community South Bank at 11543 Kingston Pike in Farragut May 13.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 865-544-0751, or the KCSO at 865-215-2243.

The public is reminded not to approach the individual, but to contact law enforcement.
