(FBI) — Over the past four years, the Loan Ranger Bandit has committed at least a dozen armed robberies of banks and other financial institutions in four different states.
A reward up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the Loan Ranger Bandit.
Beginning in 2009, he has robbed banks in Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Texas.
His most recent robbery was last month in Temple, Texas at Santa Fe Community Credit Union, the second time he has targeted that institution.
Tyler Police Department in Texas had come up with the name "Loan Ranger Bandit" because the robber is known to target financial institutions that make loans, and in one of his first robberies he wore a Texas Rangers baseball cap.
The bandit is described as a white male in his early 30's, he is 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall, and weighs about 200 pounds with a medium build.
He has short, light brown hair, wears glasses, and has a small mole or make just above his right eye on the lower part of his forehead.
His varied clothing styles have included athletic wear, jeans, and business attire. He may also drive a maroon Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck with a white pinstripe around the truck bed. He should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
