FBI Launches Site To Help Catch Bank Robbers

Play associated audio

The FBI has launched a website featuring surveillance pictures of bank robbers about whom the authorities are seeking leads and tips.

Visitors can also search for bank robbery investigations and see them plotted on a map.

Timothy Gallagher of the FBI's Washington field office says the FBI uses electronic media in so many of its cases now — the new website is simply an extention of that technology.

Gallagher says the FBI website gets a lot of Internet traffic already, and this initiative is a way to encourage people to help the FBI in solving crimes.

Digital bus shelter billboards are also going up in the District of Columbia, featuring the website address and surveillance pictures of wanted bank robbers.
