Chicago's Most Wanted: Bank bandit

Posted: Updated:

Generally a bank robber changes their appearance or uses a disguise in order to hide their identity. However, in this case, during the November 29th robbery at the MB financial bank at State and Harrison, the FBI believes the crook walked right off of a job site and into the bank. He was wearing construction clothing along with a safety vest, safety goggles, and a dust mask.

He was carrying a scrap piece of carpeting, which he left behind when he left the bank. That piece of evidence may be an indication of the type of work he was doing just before he entered the bank and, although it's possible this was an elaborate disguise, agents tend to believe that he was actually doing construction work at the time of the robbery.

A second robbery happened on January 10th of this year, only this time the subject was using a cane as he walked into the bank and his face was almost completely obscured with bandages of some sort.

Although the FBI says it can't be sure it's the same person, there are enough similarities to make them think the same person is behind both robberies.

The FBI is offering a reward for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the person.

Here is the FBI's description of this bandit.

--white male

--early 30's

--six-feet to six-feet-three inches

--hair color is unknown because he was wearing a ball cap covered by a winter hat

He is considered a danger to the community, if you see him call police.
