JONESBORO, Ark. -- An early January Jonesboro bank robbery now has a suspect, and a warrant, but no arrest of yet.

Jonesboro Police told KAIT on Tuesday night that a warrant had been issued for 39-year-old Phillip Ray Moreno for the robbery of a Regions Bank branch in Jonesboro on January 7. Detectives tell K8 Wednesday that they are looking for a second man possibly involved in the robbery.

Police allege that Moreno held a knife to a teller and demanded cash. Detective Todd Nelson says that police found fingerprints at the scene of the robbery that have been sent to the State Crime Lab. Along with tips and information from other pieces of physical evidence, the police have a warrant, and are now looking for another suspect in the case.

"They were able to lift prints from the paper, then it was a matter of finding someone who they matched," Nelson said.

With help from the FBI, local detectives were able to identify their subject. Police are now asking whether someone else helped Moreno rob the bank.

"We believe there was another person who worked with Mr. Moreno," Nelson said. "We're hoping to get information from (K8) viewers about where Mr. Moreno is, or any other information about the crime."

Jonesboro Police asks that anyone with information in this case call police department at: (870) 935-6649.
