September 09, 1993

PASADENA — Police investigators are asking for help in finding a Pasadena teen-ager they believe killed a man on Aug. 27 as he withdrew money from a First Interstate Bank automated teller machine.

An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for Antoine N. Tucker, 19, on the charge of murder, said Pasadena Police Sgt. John Thomas.

After First Interstate Bank of California offered a $50,000 reward last Thursday for information leading to a prosecution in the murder of Douglas Lane, a Pasadena resident, 10 people who called investigators named Tucker as the man pictured by the bank's security video camera, Thomas said.

The videotape that aired on local television stations shows a man pointing a gun to the victim's head and guiding him to the bank's dark parking lot.

Thomas said investigators believe Tucker is still in the area because he has few connections beyond Pasadena.

Lane, 41, was shot repeatedly and was found in the parking lot of the bank at 2370 E. Colorado Blvd. He still had $100 from the machine and $20 in his pocket, but his wallet was missing, police said.

Police believe the suspect fled in a light-colored Cadillac with other youths.

Anyone with information about Tucker's whereabouts is asked to call Pasadena police at (818) 405-4584.
