Suspect accused of multiple bank robberies gets away from 97th and Lisbon

Milwaukee Police and other law enforcement agencies, including the FBI searched for a wanted suspect near 97th and Lisbon Wednesday afternoon.

A CBS 58 crew on scene saw multiple unmarked SUVs. The activity appears to be focused on one house where the two front windows have been smashed in. 

In a press release the FBI says they were searching for 24-year-old Devontae Amos of Milwaukee. The FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at the house, but Amos fled the scene. 

Amos is wanted for armed robberies of at least three banks including the Wells Fargo on National Avenue in West Allis, the Pyramax Bank on National Avenue in West Allis and the Oostburg State Bank on Center Avenue in Oostburg. The two West Allis robberies took place in May and the Oostburg robbery happened on July 26.
