G-Men Offer $5,000 Reward for The Black Bandaged Bandit
ELKRIDGE, MD. — Even though the largest robbery in history took place during the financial meltdown that set off the Great Recession in 2008 was led by Wall Street Banksters and resulted in the taxpayers bailing out the banks, when it comes to offering a reward for bank robbers, the banks get really cheap with their rewards.
While the Feds say that the bandit arrives and hands a stickup note, photos show he is bandaged across his face and wearing a dollar collar. It could be he simply can’t see too well due to the bandage and thought he had entered his lawyer’s office.
The FBI Baltimore Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man, nicknamed the Bandage bank robber, who is wanted in connection with a series of bank robberies in Maryland. Investigators believe the same man is responsible for nine robberies beginning in October 2015; the most recent incidents were on April 1.
Witnesses describe him as a black man about 5’8” tall and around 160 pounds. In the robberies, he wears eyeglasses, a neck brace, and bandages to help conceal his face. The suspect approaches the counter, hands the bank employee a note announcing an armed robbery, and demands money. No one has been hurt in any of the robberies.
