According to the FBI, the suspect has robbed six separate Wells Fargo locations in the city between May 20th and August 5th.

Investigators said that each robbery was committed by handing the bank teller a note demanding money. The suspect also has threatened tellers in four of the six robberies, claiming he was carrying a weapon.

The FBI announced a reward of up to $3,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this bank robber.

He is described as being white and standing 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8. He has been known to wear dark or black sunglasses, a baseball cap or hat, and, on at least two instances, he wore a hair-piece or wig.
