FBI offers $10K reward for serial bank robber

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Federal investigators are asking for the help to identify a man wanted for robbing four Harrisburg-area banks at gunpoint since October.

The FBI on Thursday announced a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

The robbery spree began Oct. 14 at the M&T Bank on Simpson Ferry Road in Mechanicsburg. Other heists occurred Dec. 9 at the M&T Bank on Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg, Dec. 23 at the Fulton Bank on North 12th Street in Lemoyne, and Jan. 6 at the M&T Bank on Jonestown Road in Harrisburg.

Investigators said each robbery occurred on a Friday evening, just minutes before the banks closed. The robber brandished a gun and entered the area behind the teller counter.

He's been described as having a light complexion, about 25 to 35 years old, and 5’10” to 6’0” tall with a stocky to muscular build. At the time of the robberies, he had a closely-cropped beard and mustache.

He wore dark-framed glasses and dark-colored clothing for all four robberies, and the gun he used apparently was covered in a camouflage-pattern tape.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at 215-418-4000. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
