The FBI needs help finding a dangerous robber nicknamed the “Country Boy Bandit.” They say he’s robbed four banks and two convenience stores across North Texas.
FBI Violent Crimes Task Force Member Scott Thompson describes the masked bandit as aggressive and unpredictable.
“He has the gun out already. He's very aggressive, yelling at people. On at least two occasions, he's actually fired a round in the bank,” Thompson said. “He has a country accent. Therefore, we named him the Country Boy Bandit.
Thompson says the man has a southern drawl but is no southern gentleman.
“He's gonna hurt somebody,” he said. “He's violent, and he's very… When you see the videos, he's all over the place. He's out of control almost.”
The Country Boy Bandit has hit at least six times since late June across Fort Worth and Grapevine.
Surveillance video shows he has some kind of tattoo on the webbing of his left hand and has blond hair with a receding hairline. He was also wearing a watch, possibly a Fossil, during at least two robberies.
The FBI is putting up the cash for the country boy and his driver caught on camera in an SUV but also has used a Saturn VUE and a black Dodge pickup with a toolbox.
A $10,000 reward is being offered. Anyone with information is urged to call the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at (817) 989-3317.
