PHOENIX -- The FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force is asking for the public's help in identifying two males who used semi-automatic handguns in the robbery of a Phoenix credit union last month.

The suspects entered Arizona State Credit Union near Greenway Parkway and 64th Street at approximately 10:30 a.m. on June 26 then ordered everyone to the floor.

One of the suspects ordered the branch manager to the vault and obtained an undisclosed amount of money.

That suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 5 inches tall with a thin build and wearing a black nylon or ski mask over his face, black long-sleeve sweater or shirt, black pants, tennis shoes with white soles, blue or light-colored latex gloves and carrying a black pillowcase.

The other suspect is described as a black male, 25 to 30 years old, 6 feet 1 inch tall, 200 to 250 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white logo on the front and back, black pants, white tennis shoes and blue or light-colored latex gloves.

Another male was the driver of the getaway vehicle, but no description was provided.

The vehicle is described as a 2000 four-door GMC Jimmy. The top was red and the bottom was gray with a tan or beige trim piece running the length of the vehicle between the two body colors.

This robbery may be related to the robbery of the same institution on Sept. 11, 2012.

Arizona State Credit Union is offering a $10,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI at 623-466-1999 or go to www.BanditTrackerArizona.com. 

The Bank Robbery Task Force is comprised of the Phoenix Police Department, Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Mesa Police Department and the FBI.
