They’re calling him the I-55 Bandit, since he held up a bunch of banks along the Interstate 55 corridor in Saint Louis, but since he’s also robbed Baltimore-area banks (and an Ocean City bank, and a West Virginia bank, and a couple of Tennessee banks…), they might consider coming up with a more accurate name. But I digress! The real question is, do you know who this young, robbery-happy man is?
According to the FBI the bandit in question has robbed or attempted to rob a dozen banks in five states (including Wells Fargo & Hartford Bank in Bel Air; TD Bank in Essex; and Susquehanna Bank in Ocean City). His usual M.O.: he gives the teller a note demanding money and implying that he’s armed. No one gets hurt, and he makes away with a bunch of cash. So if you happen to know a tall (6’0 – 6’3″) young (early 20s) man with short brown or strawberry blond hair who also happens to have a lot more $20 bills than usual, give the FBI a call. (The special agent on the case in Baltimore is named — I kid you not! — Rich Wolf.)
