BUFFALO, N.Y. -- James H. Robertson, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Buffalo Field Office, announces a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two individuals wanted for committing a violent bank robbery in North Carolina.  Philip Purdue and Gregory Young are wanted on State of North Carolina arrest warrants issued on 11/24/2010 and 11/23/2010, respectively.  The warrants allege that Purdue and Young conspired to and committed felonious bank robbery with a dangerous weapon at a Fidelity Bank in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, on 11/22/2010.
