Chicago's Most Wanted "Quick Change" Bandit

Posted:

FBI agents call the latest serial bank robber to hit the Chicago area the "Quick Change" bandit for two reasons. He's quick to escape and they say he quickly changes clothes after a robbing a bank. Investigators say this bandit leaves a bag of clothes outside the bank "in an out of the way area". Before taking off with the money, they say he takes off sunglasses and ski cap and changes jackets. They believe he puts those items in the same bag with the money and walks off.

Despite the "Quick Change" bandit's quick change after each robbery, FBI agents say they have gotten a good look at his face. The FBI's Ross Rice says a bank surveillance camera snapped a few photos of the bandit without him wearing any of his disguise.

Investigators believe this bandit is responsible for robbing at least three Chicago banks in the last seven months. The first one was on New Year's Eve. That's when agents say the knocked over the MB Financial Bank branch at 1 South Wacker. They say the last time the "Quick Change" bandit struck was when he robbed the North Community Bank branch in the 400 block of North Wells Street on July 3rd. During each robbery, investigators say the bandit has waved a gun and been "verbally abusive" to bank employees and customers.

Investigators describe the "Quick Change" bandit is a black male, around 35 years old, about six feet two inches tall, weighing approximately 220 pounds, wearing a baseball cap and jacket and carrying a black shoulder bag.

He is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, call police.
