Investigators are seeking the public's help in locating an alleged serial bank robber known as the Brim Beanie Bandit.
The FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force suspects the man of robbing four banks, and making one attempt in the greater Boston area between December 10 to December 23.
While a weapon has not been seen during any of the robberies, the suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
The alleged robber is a white male, believed to be in his late 40s or early 50s, and approximately 5-foot-seven inches tall and 150 pounds.
During the robberies, he has worn a dark sweatshirt or jacket, black pants, black gloves, and dark brown or black shoes with a black or gray brim beanie cap.
The Brim Beanie Bandit enters the bank, approaches the teller, and either shows or leaves a note asking for money. On all robberies, the bandit fled the bank in an unknown direction; it is unknown at this time if a vehicle is being used for transportation.
The FBI is offering an unspecified monetary reward for information leading directly to the arrest and charging of the robber. Anyone with information regarding the robbery should call the FBI’s Boston Division at (617) 742-5533.
