FBI Offers $5,000 for Serial Bank Robber
The FBI Baltimore Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man, nicknamed the Bandage bank robber, who is wanted in connection with a series of bank robberies in Maryland. Investigators believe the same man is responsible for nine robberies beginning in October 2015; the most recent incidents were on April 1.
Witnesses describe him as a black man about 5’8” tall and around 160 pounds. In the robberies, he wears eyeglasses, a neck brace, and bandages to help conceal his face. The suspect approaches the counter, hands the bank employee a note announcing an armed robbery, and demands money. No one has been hurt in any of the robberies.
