CHICAGO (STMW) — The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information about a man they’ve dubbed the “Pick-a-Logo Bandit,” responsible for three bank robberies since November.
The robber earned his name by wearing a different jacket in each robbery, each with a different logo on the front, according to the FBI.READ MORE: Jussie Smollett Trial: Testimony Expected To Begin Tuesday
The bandit first struck at the U.S. Bank branch at 3525 W. 63rd St. about 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 28, 2014, according the FBI. He entered the bank, approached an employee to demand money and lifted his jacket to imply he had a weapon underneath.
He robbed the same bank on Jan. 3, this time lifting his jacket to reveal a handgun tucked in his waistband, the FBI said.READ MORE: Weather: Slightly Warmer Day Ahead
His most recent heist occurred last month in southwest suburban Hometown, according to the FBI. He entered the U.S. Bank branch at 4062 Southwest Hwy., took a gun out of his waistband and pointed it at an employee while demanding money.
Witnesses have described the Pick-a-Logo Bandit as a 25-30-year-old black man about 6 feet tall with a thin build, according to the FBI. He has worn a variety of hats and jackets during the robberies.
A reward of up to $5,000 is offered for information that leads to his identification and arrest, the FBI said. Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.MORE NEWS: Woman With Concealed Carry Permit Shoots At Would-Be Gunpoint Carjacker In Roseland
