On Oct. 28, just after noon, a black man entered the PNC Bank located off New Macland Road just north of Powder Springs Road, allegedly pulled out a black revolver and announced a robbery to a bank teller.
After confronting and threatening the teller with his weapon, Irungo James Tate obtained an undisclosed amount of money and departed the bank without further incident, police say.
Tate, 32, of Mableton, was last seen driving a black mid-90s Honda Accord, with frontend and hood damage, possibly bearing Georgia tag PIK6367, said Chief of Police Charlie Sewell.
“Tate is to be considered armed and dangerous,” Sewell said.
There is an active warrant for Tate on the charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, said Sewell.
“Tate has family ties in the metro Atlanta and metro New Orleans area and may be located in either area,” said Sewell.
Anyone with information regarding this robbery or the location of Tate should contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at (404) 577-8477.
PNC Bank is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this violent armed robbery.
