Investigators believe the suspect shown robbing a Powder Springs bank is Irango Tate.

A man who got out of prison in January after serving time for an armed robbery conviction is now accused of an armed robbery at a Cobb County bank.

Irungo James Tate, 32, of Mableton, is accused of robbing a PNC bank in Powder Springs at Tategunpoint on Oct. 28, according to Major Matt Boyd with the city’s police department. An arrest warrant has been issued for Tate’s arrest on charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm while committing a crime, according to police.

The only problem is investigators aren’t sure where Tate is, and they’re asking for the public’s help in finding him.

Tate is 6-feet-1, weighs 195 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. He was last seen driving a mid-90’s Honda Accord, possibly with Georgia tag PIK6367. The vehicle has damage to the front and hood, according to police.

Tate, who should be considered armed and dangerous, has family in the Atlanta and New Orleans areas and could be in either place. Anyone with information about the case or Tate’s whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.

PNC is offering up to a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
