SOUTH FLORIDA – The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the person or persons responsible for at least 10 South Florida bank robberies.
Investigators have identified this robber as the “Business Bandit” due to the attire he wears during the robberies.
“We call him the business bandit because he’s dressed in business attire for the robberies,” said FBI special agent Justin Flek speaking CBS Miami.
“He looks like he should be working at the bank instead of robbing the bank but unfortunately he chose the wrong path.”
It is believed that the Business Bandit was allegedly involved in 10 South Florida bank robberies to include:
– December 18, 2015 – TD Bank 1371 West Palmetto Park Road – Boca Raton
– January 15, 2016 – Suntrust 7800 Glades Road – Boca Raton
– February 5, 2016 – TD Bank 16200 NW 57 Avenue – Miami
– February 17, 2016 – Wells Fargo 6735 West Indiantown Road – Jupiter
– November 7, 2017 – Suntrust 7800 Glades Road – Boca Raton
– November 10, 2017 – PNC Bank 10973 North Military Trail – Palm Beach Gardens
– November 17, 2017 – Wells Fargo 9162 Glades Road – Boca Raton
– December 15, 2017 – TD Bank 8711 NW 186th Street – Miami
– February 9, 2018 – BB&T Bank 1299 SW Military Trail – Deerfield Beach
– March 2, 2018 – Bank of America 5504 South Flamingo Road – Cooper City
This robber should be considered ARMED AND DANGEROUS.
“He’s been pretty dangerous,” Flek added.
“He’s brandished a firearm in the recent robberies, became very aggressive during the robberies. You can see in some of the photos he has his finger on the trigger of the firearm, which in the law enforcement realm is an extremely dangerous situation to be in.”
The following agencies are involved in the investigation: Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Miami Dade Police Department, Boca Raton Police Department, Palm Beach Gardens Police Department, Jupiter Police Department, the South Florida Violent Crime Task Force, and the FBI.
If anyone has information as to the identity of this bank robber, they are urged to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Crimestoppers.
