Chicago's Most Wanted 'Double Dip Bandit Strikes Again

Posted:

When the "Double Dip" bandit was first profiled on Chicago's Most Wanted back in March, Chicago FBI agents were looking for him because they believe he robbed the same bank twice in two weeks, a TCF bank at in Park Ridge.

Since then, they say the "Double Dip" bandit has pulled off at least five more bank robberies by knocking over a Citibank branch on Chicago's northweside two times, and another TCF bank branch three times in the same area .

Agents say he last struck on June 8th when he robbed the TCF Bank in the 2800 block of west Devon for the second time. They believe this bandit keeps targeting the same banks because he's successfully robbed them in the past.

Witnesses tell investigators he is armed with what's described as a chrome-looking revolver and that he's threatened to harm bank employees if they dont comply with his demands.

Here's an updated description as to what agents say the 'double dip' bandit looks like. He is described as a white male, 35 to 40 years old, about six feet tall and has a slight goatee.

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