Arrrrgh you a repeat offenders, mateys?

FBI and Philly PD put out information about a pair of dude's who stuck up the Wachovia in Roxborough this morning. The Pirates hat in the description? Reminds me of dude from the Sept. 11th Rising Sun Avenue job I wrote about on Sept. 16. Here's the details:
The FBI and the Philadelphia Police Department are seeking the public's assistance to identify and locate the subject responsible for the armed robbery of the Wachovia Bank branch located at 6912 Ridge Avenue earlier today.
At approximately 9:15 AM, two unidentified males entered the branch, brandished semi-automatic handguns, and threatened the employees. The subjects are described as black males, in their 20’s, 6’0” tall or taller, thin builds, wearing baseball caps, sunglasses, and dark hooded sweatshirts with the hoods up. One of the subjects’ baseball caps had a Pirate’s “P” logo on the front and a red bill.
After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the subjects fled on foot and were last seen running on Ridge Avenue. There were no injuries.
Four photographs from the bank's security cameras are attached to this email. These subjects are considered armed and dangerous, and anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Philadelphia Police Department. There may be a reward for information leading to the identification and apprehension of these subjects. Tipsters can remain anonymous.

Roxborough, rise up and drop dime!
