The FBI needs your help to find the man who they say is responsible for several bank robberies around the valley.

The last robbery happened Jan. 12 at the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union inside a Safeway grocery store near Scottsdale and Pinnacle Peak Roads.  He showed the teller a note and verbally demanded money from the cash drawers.

The teller complied and gave the suspect a known amount of currency.

Authorities believe he also robbed a Chase Bank in Gilbert near Warner Road and Val Vista Drive on Jan. 5.

The suspect is described as a white male, 6 feet tall, 28 to 31-years-old with a pale complexion and freckles.

He was last seen wearing a white baseball cap with the letter "S" on it, black sunglasses, grey or light colored button up long sleeve shirt, black jeans and black tennis shoes.

A weapon was not shown during the crimes, according to authorities.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
