(June 13, 2013)—A reward of as much as $10,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction as authorities in Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi continue to search for a bank robber dubbed the “Lone Ranger Bandit.”
He’s suspected in four bank holdups in Central Texas.
He was dubbed the “Lone Ranger Bandit” because he wore a Texas Rangers baseball cap while robbing banks where loans are made, the FBI said.
He walks into banks undisguised and demands $20, $50 and $100 bills, the FBI said.
So far no one has been injured, but the FBI says he should be considered armed and dangerous.
Locally, he’s wanted in connection with the Oct. 4, 2011 robbery of the Santa Fe Community Credit Union in Temple, the Jan. 4, 2012 robbery of the Union State Bank in Round Rock, the July 9, 2012 robbery of the First Bank of Central Texas in Salado and the Aug. 17, 2012 robbery of the FedStar Credit Union in College Station.
He’s also wanted in robberies were in Benton, Ark.; Tyler, Wichita Falls, and in Madison, Miss.
The “Lone Ranger Bandit” is white, in his early 30s, 5-foot-7 to 6-feet tall, weighs about 200 pounds and has a medium build.
He has short light brown hair, wears glasses and has a small mole or other type of mark above his right eye.
He’s worn everything from athletic clothing to jeans to business attire during the robberies, and may be driving a maroon Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck with a thin white pinstripe around the truck bed, the FBI said.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to call local police or the FBI at (800) CALL-FBI. Tips may also be submitted online.
