FBI Searching for Can’t Wait Bandit

The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is searching for a man who is suspected of robbing four valley banks in five days. Two of the banks were robbed within an hour of each other Friday night, earning the suspect the nickname “Can’t Wait” Bandit.

Two surveillance photos show the man was wearing a black Pittsburgh Steelers hat and a black long-sleeved shirt or jacket. The suspect is described as a white male and 25 to 35 years old. He’s 5’7” to 5’9” tall and 160 to 180 pounds. He has light brown hair, a brown mustache, a beard with some graying, and crooked teeth.

During two of the robberies, the suspect displayed a note demanding money.

In all four of the robberies, the suspect threatened to use a weapon. No weapon was ever seen. He took off with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was physically injured.
