The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a serial South Florida bank robber, dubbed the “Cover-up Bandit.”
Authorities say the bandit, who covers his face during the crimes, robbed the PNC Bank branch on West Atlantic Avenue on Feb. 16 in Delray Beach. That marked the third of four South Florida bank heists tied to the robber in a month.
He is believed to be armed and dangerous, according to the FBI. Authorities haven’t said how much money he has stolen during the robberies.
The bandit is suspected in the Jan. 16 and Feb. 2 robberies of a Wells Fargo branch in Fort Lauderdale as well as the BankUnited branch robbery Feb. 22 in Lighthouse Point.
Anyone with information about the “Cover-up Bandit” is urged to contact the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS (8477).
