WASHINGTON, D.C. - Police are asking the public to be lookout for a serial bank robber who has hit more than a dozen banks and grocery stores primarily in the Midwest, including four in Illinois.
The FBI has released an image of the suspect they've dubbed the 'Ray-Bandit' - referring to the Ray-Ban style glasses he's worn in some of the holdups.
He's a white male said to be between the ages of 20-25, about 5-feet-8 to 6 feet and weighs approximately 200 to 215 pounds. He was wearing a hat with the Ford Shelby Cobra logo.
Police believe the suspect robbed grocery store banks in Moline, Edwardsville and Collinsville in August and a bank in Milan in September. The suspect was most recently linked to a holdup in Virginia last week.
The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction.
Anyone with information is asked to call your local FBI office.
