FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Federal officials are contributing to a reward to anyone who can identify a suspect who posed as a U.S. Marshal last week.

It happened September 13th at the Suncoast Credit Union on Underwood Drive in Fort Myers.

However, officials think he might be from West Palm Beach, Miami or Fort Lauderdale.

According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, a white or Hispanic male entered a credit union wearing a bulletproof vest, badge, and had a holstered firearm on his hip.  The male identified himself as a U.S. Marshal and asked the staff a series of strange questions.

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppersannounced Wednesday that U.S. Marshals are now offering $2,500 as a reward for information leading to an arrest.  That's in addition to the customary $1,000 that SWFL Crime Stoppers offers.

If you can identify this subject, please contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 239-258-3855, 239-477-1000, or SWFL Crime Stoppers, 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
