WALNUT CREEK (CBS SF) — The FBI is working with Pleasanton and Walnut Creek police to track down a serial bank robber who has been dubbed the “button-down bandit,” FBI officials said.

The button-down bandit is sought for two bank robberies in March, including a March 12 heist in Pleasanton at the Wells Fargo at 4746 Hopyard Road.

Another robbery was reported on March 6 at the Chase Bank at 1510 Camino Verde in Walnut Creek, FBI officials said.

In both cases the suspect presented a note and verbally demanded money.

The suspect is known to wear a button-down, long sleeve collared shirt.

He is described as a black man between the ages of 30 and 35, standing between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall with a medium build.

Along with the button-down shirt he has worn dark gray dress slacks and black dress shoes.

Other witnesses said he has a scruffy beard and goatee. He has been seen wearing dark sunglasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI 24-hour line at (415) 553-7400.
