Chicago's Most Wanted Quick Change Bandit Strikes Again

Posted:

Blink and you might miss him. The serial bank robber FBI agents have dubbed the "Quick Change" Bandit is at it again.

It's been several months since the "Quick Change" Bandit last struck but he is still just as fast. FBI agents believe this bandit knocked over a south side bank on March 12th. They say the suspect walked into the First American Bank in the 45-hundred block of south Pulaski, armed with a hand gun. Despite his nickname, agents say the "Quick Change" Bandit did not change his disguise as he made his getaway following his latest bank robbery. Instead of ducking into a crowd and putting on a different cap and jacket in an "out of the way" place, they say the bandit got into a waiting car and drove way.

Investigators also say the "Quick Change" Bandit is becoming more aggressive and more violent. During the October 7th robbery, agents say the "Quick Change" 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. In the March 12th robbery, the FBI's Ross Rice says the bandit was "much more agitated" and his threats had a lot of the bank employees concerned for their safety.


When we last profiled the "Quick Change" Bandit on Chicago's Most Wanted a few months ago, FBI agents believed he was responsible for also robbing these four 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
October 7, 2010 -- Charter One, 4000 block of N Lincoln Avenue

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, wearing a green military jacket, black pants, white running shoes and sun glasses.

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.
