BIRMINGHAM ATM ARMED ROBBERY:

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying three suspects wanted for targeting a man pulling cash out of an ATM at America's First Federal Credit Union on Crow Drive. It happened shortly after 6 pm January 20, 2013, and the suspects' pictures are posted to the right of this story.

"For this kind of crime, it's actually ridiculous to put someone's life in jeopardy for $60," said Birmingham Police Department Detective Pat Green.

One of the suspects didn't follow through with the armed robbery, but police said it didn't stop the other two suspects from robbing the victim after he received money from the ATM.

"What we need people to do is not become the next victim," added Green. "Get on the phone and give us a call here at Crime Stoppers so that we can see about getting these guys off the street."

GRAYSVILLE GAS STATION ROBBERY:

Detectives also need your help identifying a suspect wanted for a Graysville gas station robbery. It happened January 11, 2013, early in the morning.

Authorities said the suspect ran into the store then brought the store clerk toward the cash register. He left with an undetermined amount of cash.

"A witness pulling into the parking lot sees him exit the building and said that he ran toward the car wash on South Main Street in Graysville," said Jefferson County Detective Brian Allison. "It's imperative that we get this guy off the street. This time he didn't brandish a weapon or didn't use a weapon in the commission of the crime, but that's not to say the next time he won't."
