Feds: Bank Robber May be Hiding on Long Island
Federal authorities are asking for the public to be on the lookout for an armed suspect who may be hiding on eastern Long Island after allegedly holding up banks in three states.
Luis Alomar is wanted on a federal arrest warrant for allegedly robbing banks in Delaware, New York and New Jersey, according to the FBI. He speaks Spanish and has ties to the Mastic-Shirley area.
“Alomar is alleged to have made verbal threats to bank tellers, telling them he would shoot them if they said anything,” the agency said in a statement.
In most cases, he allegedly handed a demand note to the teller indicating he was carrying a weapon. In some cases, a weapon was displayed. He normally demands large bills.
Alomar also has ties to southern Florida, specifically Palm Beach County, Kissimmee and Osceola County. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
The 37-year-old suspect is described as 5-feet, 4-inches tall, 145 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He has a large mole on his right forehead, as well as tattoos on right arm and right leg.
He also uses the aliases Arturo Alomar, Luis Arturo, David Diaz, David Gonzalez, Louis Alomar and Luis Castillo.
Anyone with information is asked to call the New York FBI at 212-384-1000. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
