ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – Authorities are searching for a man who robbed an Albuquerque bank at gunpoint.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher says a man with a bandanna covering his face entered the BBVA Compass Bank in northeast Albuquerque just after 9 a.m. Friday.

Witnesses say the man wielded a small, semi-automatic handgun at a teller and demanded money.

The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash and got into a light-colored Dodge extended cab pickup truck with a turquoise New Mexico license plate.

He is described as dark-skinned, in his 20s, about 150 pounds and between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10.

Authorities say he was wearing a black hoodie with a gray skull design on the chest, gray or blue jeans and black sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI.
