The FBI and local police in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas are seeking a serial armed bank robber dubbed the “Loan Ranger Bandit.” He is believed to be responsible for the October 26, 2012 robbery of the BankcorpSouth in Madison, Mississippi.

The robber is described as a white male in his early 30s, approximately 5’7” to 6’0” tall, approximately 200 pounds, with a medium build. He has short light brown hair, wears glasses, and has a small mole or mark just above his right eye on the lower part of his forehead. His varied clothing styles have included: athletic wear, jeans, and business attire.
