FBI Hunting 'Well-Dressed Bandit'

FBI(SAN DIEGO) -- California police and the FBI are on the hunt for a dapper man dubbed the “well-dressed bandit” who has held up banks 10 times in the last year.

The man carries out the robberies while wearing blazers or leather jackets and uses luxury vehicles as a getaway car.

FBI investigators say that the man most recently held up a Chase Bank in San Diego on Friday.

“The suspect approached a teller, simulated a weapon and demanded cash,” the FBI said in a statement. With cash in hand, the man left in either a black Lexus or Mercedes-Benz.  Police believe it’s the third time he has hit that particular bank.

Since May of last year, the FBI believes, the man is responsible for 10 bank robberies in the San Diego area. He is described as a black man in his thirties, over 6 feet and around 220 pounds.

When he covers his face, he uses a black handkerchief. He switches up the hats he wears — sometimes a baseball cap and other times a newsboy cap.

If you have any information, contact the FBI at (858) 565-1255 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477
