Chicago's Most Wanted "Over the Hill" Bandit

Posted:


You'll never guess the age of the man FBI agents say robbed two Berwyn area banks in April.
According to investigators, witnesses have described him as being 65 to 70 years old. That's why agents call this serial bank robber the "Over the Hill" bandit.

Depsite his age, investigators say he not only robbed two banks but also attempted to knock over a third all in the same month. The FBI's Ross Rice adds, "He seems to know a little bit about banks or being a teller because he asks for reserve money. He asks for large bills. He specifically instructs the teller not to give him a dye pack or any bait money."

Agents say the suspect makes his getaway on foot by simply walking out of the bank an disappearring in to the passing crowd.

The "over the hill bandit" has also done a pretty good job of hiding his face when robbing a bank. Each time, he wears a hat, dark glasses and gloves.

Thats why agents want you to take a good look at his picture.
Here is what agents do know about the "Over the Hill" bandit. He is described as a white male, 65 to 70 years old, about five feet six inches tall, with gray hair and wears a black ball cap with Chicago in red letters on the back.

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