ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA BANK ROBBERY/BOMBING MYSTERY:
New Information Sought

09/11/03

On 9/11/03, a new drawing was released in the Erie Bank Robbery/Bombing case. The drawing was made from the description of a man seen emerging from a wooded area directly behind the Country Fair gas station and convenience mart located on Peach Street in Erie, Pennsylvania. Accordingly, this man is of interest for questioning. He is a white male, approximately six feet tall, dark brown medium length hair, wearing a Pittsburgh Steeler's jersey, denim shorts, and high top sneakers.

This drawing joins drawings of two other men, a site map, and photographs of a collar bomb and lock that were released earlier. Of the earlier drawings, one man (pictured) was located and questioned; no further information is needed. The other man--a white male with scraggly hair--is still wanted for questioning. He was seen on Interchange Road, near the Red Lobster restaurant, running through traffic and touching several vehicles along the way. He is described as being about 5'8" with white-blond hair, in his early 20s, and wearing dark cargo shorts, an untucked white t-shirt, white sneakers, and a baseball cap.

All items concern the events of August 28, when pizza delivery man Brian Douglas Wells was allegedly locked into a bombing device by unknown person(s) and ordered to rob a bank branch just outside the city of Erie. When he was detained by the Pennsylvania State Police following the robbery, the bomb exploded, killing him instantly.

On behalf of the multi-agency task force investigating the case, the FBI requests the public to carefully scrutinize the items pictured. If you have any information at all about the items, about the identities of the men pictured, or about the locations shown on the map, please immediately call the toll-free number 1-866-219-2008.
