The FBI is seeking help finding a man it says is a serial bank robbery suspect who has reportedly robbed—or attempted to rob—two banks in Bel Air along with 10 others in other states.
Dubbed the "I-55 Bandit" by the FBI in Missouri, because all the banks robbed in the St. Louis area were along Interstate 55. In total, the man may have robbed 10 banks and attempted to rob two others in five states since May. The FBI said the man has targeted banks in Illinois, Missouri, Maryland, West Virginia and Tennessee.
In Bel Air, the FBI said the man targeted the Hartford Bank on Marketplace Drive and Wells Fargo Bank on Bel Air Road.
In all the robberies, the FBI said a man used a demand note and implied he was armed. However, no one was physically injured in any of the robberies. The amounts of money taken are not being disclosed.
The "I-55 Bandit" is described as in his early- to mid-20s, about 6 feet to 6 feet 3 inches tall, and thin with short brown or strawberry blond hair.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI or email Richard Wolf at email@example.com in the Baltimore field office regarding the Bel Air incidents.
