Crime

Atlanta, GA-- Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Brian D. Lamkin, FBI Atlanta, in conjunction with the Atlanta Police Department, announces the arrest of the following individual, responsible for September 9, 2010 robbery of the Chase Bank, located at 3330 Piedmont Road, Atlanta, Georgia.

Abdul Khaliq Amin, age 52, was arrested after an FBI SWAT entry was made at a Decatur, Georgia residence earlier this morning.  A crucial tip from a viewer of a local area television station broadcasting photographs of the robber prior to donning his robbery mask was considered instrumental in today’s arrest.

Amin will have his initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge in Atlanta, Georgia later this afternoon.

On Tuesday, September 07, 2010, during the mid morning hours, a lone black male entered the Chase Bank, located at 3330 Piedmont Road, Atlanta, Georgia, and, after putting on a porcelain doll type facemask, entered the above bank and brandished a semi automatic handgun while announcing a robbery.  The robber then jumped over the teller counter and forcibly obtained an undisclosed amount of money.

The robber was described as being a black male, late 30’s to late 40’s in age, 5’8” – 5’10” in height, scruffy beard/facial hair, prescription eye glasses, black wool cap, white t-shirt, blue jeans, silver semi-auto handgun, porcelain dolly type facemask.

While the robber was masked, two very detailed photographs of the robbers face were taken by the bank’s ATM machine just prior to the robber placing the mask over his face.

It is noted that the above are mere allegations and that all persons are to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
