OKLAHOMA CITY -

The FBI and other metro law enforcement agencies are looking for a man accused of being on a crime spree.

Authorities are looking for 51-year-old Craig Banks.

Police said Banks, last Friday, took a car to an Oklahoma City Pep Boys to get a new water pump. They said when it came time to pay his $337 tab, Banks pulled a gun then sped away.

The FBI said Banks is also “a person of interest” for two bank robberies earlier this week.

Police won't say what banks they're talking about, but police released surveillance video of robberies at two IBC Banks in the metro area earlier this week.

“We're asking anyone with information to give us a call at 793-1968,” Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office Spokesman Mark Myers said Thursday afternoon.
