KOLD News 13 News Editor Marissa Pasquet

The serial bank robbery suspect has been identified as 56-year-old Jerry Lee Slagle, whose last known address is in the 3400 block of West Orange Grove Road, according to authorities.

Bank surveillance pictures show a white male between 40 and 50 years old. Police say he is 5'8" to 5'10" tall and weighs approximately 220 lbs. The suspect had a gray beard, long brown hair, and was wearing glasses.

Robbery Detectives with the Tucson Police Department and the Marana Police Department are asking for the public's help to identify the suspect wanted in connection with three bank robberies in the last six weeks.

The first robbery occurred November 30, 2007 at 2:40 p.m. when the suspect entered Canyon Bank, located in the 6800 block of North Thornydale Road, and demanded money from the teller after displaying a gun. Witnesses say the suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

On December 27, 2007 authorities say the same suspect robbed a Compass Bank in the 7800 block of East Broadway Boulevard at 9:25 a.m. and again demanded money from a teller while displaying his handgun. The suspect fled on foot and was last seen by witnesses traveling in a northwest direction. The amount of money taken was undisclosed.

On January 2, 2007 the same suspect entered the Wells Fargo Bank in the 7800 block of North Silverbell Road, displayed his handgun and demanded money, but this time fled without obtaining any money, according to authorities.

Witnesses saw the suspect getting into a pale blue 1970's model sedan, which had the driver's window taped up, authorities report.

If you have any information or recognize Jerry Lee Slagle you are urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
