FBI Announces Reward for the Droopy Face Bandit
The FBI is announcing a reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a serial bank robber dubbed the “Droopy Face Bandit.”
The suspect was given the moniker Droopy Face Bandit because of descriptions of his droopy cheeks.
He is believed to be responsible for as many as ten robberies in San Francisco dating back to 2007. The most recent robberies occurred last month. One on September 16th at the East West Bank on 498 Clement Street and another on September 8th at the East West Bank on 900 Kerny Street.
FBI investigators believe the Droopy Face Bandit also committed two robberies in 2009 and six robberies in 2007.
He appears to be targeting banks in predominantly Asian neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, including Chinatown and the Clement Street area.
In each case, he has used a note to demand money from the tellers and has led them to believe that he possessed a weapon.
The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
A reward of up to $5,000 is available for information that leads to the apprehension and prosecution of this robber.
The FBI is asking anyone with information about his identity or whereabouts to come forward and contact the San Francisco FBI Office at: (415) 553-7400.
