FBI offering a $10k reward for info leading to arrest, conviction of bank robber

Kuna Police are still looking for the machete-carrying man who robbed the U.S. Bank on W. Main Street on Oct. 21 — and the FBI is offering a $10,000 reward to whoever is able to provide info that leads to his arrest and conviction.

Kuna Police were called to the bank just after 1 p.m. on Oct. 21. Witnesses say a man walked in wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans, with a mask or bandanna covering the bottom of his face, and holding a machete-type knife.


The man went up to a clerk and demanded cash. After getting an undisclosed amount of money, he ran out of the bank and headed southeast.

Kuna Police arrived moments later and did an intensive search of the area but weren’t able to find him.

Investigators suspect the same man robbed the Idaho Independent Bank in Meridian on Nov. 21 while holding a meat cleaver.

Anyone with information should call Ada County dispatch at 377-6790 or the Salt Lake City FBI Office at (801) 579-1400.
