WELLS FARGO OFFERS $50,000 REWARD

 WELLS FARGO OFFERS $50,000 REWARD
 LOS ANGELES, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Wells Fargo Bank today


announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the identity, capture and conviction of the man responsible for an ill-fated robbery attempt that involved a San Fernando Valley branch manager and his family. The reward offer appeared in full-page ads in Monday's Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Daily News. The size of the reward is unprecedented in the company's history.
 "With this reward Wells Fargo is serving notice: 'Don't mess with our employees,'" said Lois Rice, executive vice president and manager of the bank's Los Angeles Coastal Retail Division. "Don't hassle, threaten, kidnap or hurt them. If you do, rest assured we will use every resource available to catch you."
 The incident prompting the reward occurred on April 14, when the manager of the bank's Fallbrook Mall office in West Hills was taken hostage along with his wife and three children in their home. A bearded, 300-pound suspect wired the manager and his wife with what turned out to be fake explosives and threatened to blow them up unless the manager obtained cash from the bank. The manager alerted the police instead. No one was injured, but the suspect escaped, although without any money.
 Anyone with any information about this crime can call the Los Angeles Police Department at 213-485-0780 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 213-485-2504 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 a.m.
