An “armed and dangerous” suspect nicknamed the “91st Street Robber” allegedly robbed 11 banks in four states over a span of 5 months.
FBI Detectives have offered a $10,000 reward to the public as they ramp up their efforts to find him.
Police say the brawl has occurred over the past five months, with the first occurring in West Springfield, Massachusetts on September 9 of last year.
The most recent robbery occurred on January 27 in Greenfield, Massachusetts, according to the FBI.
Police said the suspect was nicknamed the “91st Street robber” because the banks he targeted were located off Interstate 91.
Joseph R Bonavlonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division, warned that suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
The “91st Street Bandit” is said to have threatened to use a gun and attempted to enter the bank vault in at least six robberies, CNN reported.
As part of the investigation, the FBI released CCTV footage showing the suspect inside a bank in Athol, Massachusetts on November 5.
He was wearing a jumpsuit with the words Postal College printed on it.
He walked into the bank and handed a piece of paper to an employee sitting at his desk.
Footage then shows the suspect in a room with three bank employees.
It is not known what is said in the clip but two workers are later seen handing the suspect a stack of cash which he put in an envelope.
Minutes later, the “91st Street Bandit” is seen leaving the premises.
“In the interest of public safety, we ask that anyone with information about this individual contact us immediately,” said Joseph R Bonavlonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston FBI Division.
“We need to stop this man’s crimes before someone gets hurt,” he urged.
Police said the suspect was a bank robber who was 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8 inches tall and usually wore a hood or hat and white sneakers.
The FBI is offering Americans $10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of a suspect.
