ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal and local authorities are investigating if two bank robberies that occurred in Albuquerque are related.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher says a branch of Wells Fargo and one of Bank of America were robbed Saturday morning.

Fisher says a man described as Hispanic, early 40s and 5-foot-6 allegedly robbed Bank of America on 4th Street near Osuna Road.

Authorities say he wore a leather hat, a long black coat and sunglasses.

Fisher says authorities received another report of a bank robbery at Wells Fargo on Juan Tabo Boulevard near Central Avenue.

Fisher says a preliminary description says the suspect is described as a Hispanic male and about 6 feet tall.

He is also described as wearing brown pants and a dark jacket.
