Chicago's Most Wanted Quick Change Bandit Update

Posted:

 The bandit known for making his escape by quickly changing his clothes after robbing a bank, is at it again.

When we first profiled the "Quick Change" Bandit on Chicago's Most Wanted fourt months ago, FBI agents believed he was responsible for robbing three banks. Now, they say he's added one more to his list. Investigators say he knocked over the Charter One Bank in the 4000 block of North Lincoln Avenue on October 7th.

Previously, they say the Quick Change Bandit robbed these three Chicago banks:

December 31, 2009 -- MB Financial Bank, 1 S Wacker Drive
March 26, 2010 -- Fifth Third Bank, 1 S Dearborn
July 3, 2010 -- North Community Bank, 448 N Wells


As his list of continues to grow, investigators say the "Quick Change" Bandit is sticking to his routine and escaping the same way each time. The FBI's Angela Byers says he ducks into a crowd and then looks for an "out of the way" place that to change clothes. Byers adds, "He is actually changing his attire. Changing his cap, changing his jacket, and his glasses." They also say he is becoming more aggressive and more violent. During the October 7th robbery, agents say this bandit asked teller if he wanted his head blown off after the bandit noticed a dye pack in a stack of money. No one was injured during this robbery.


Here is a detailed description of what investigators say the "Quick Change" Bandit looks like.

He is described as a black male, around forty years old, about six feet two inches tall, with black hair, wearing a ball cap, sun glasses, a scarf, jeans and a black and grey coat.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

A ten-thousand dollar reward is being offered for any information leading to the arrest of the "Quick Change" Bandit.
