FBI seeks public assistance in finding serial bank robber

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has sought public assistance in finding a man responsible for robbing at least three Sacramento-area Schools Financial Credit Unions.

The serial bank robber, who is being called the "Dropout Bandit" by the FBI, has robbed at least three credit unions in the Sacramento area, viz. 8725 Folsom Blvd., 1631 Claudia Drive, and 8255 Laguna Blvd. in Elk Grove.

The 8725 Folsom Blvd. was robbed on March 20, while the 1631 Claudia Drive and 8255 Laguna Blvd. were robbed on May 8 and June 30, respectively.

According to an FBI statement, the robber calmly enters the credit union at his target, approaches the teller, places a bag and a gun on the counter, and orders the teller to fill the bag with money. Then, he calmly leaves the bank with the cash.

During the robberies, the suspect was wearing black glasses, subdued colored clothing and a golf-type cap. But investigators don't know if the clothing he was wearing during the robberies is his signature everyday clothes.

Seeking the public's assistance in finding the robber, FBI Spokesperson Gina Swankie said, "We have no idea if the clothing he is wearing during these robberies is his signature everyday (clothes) or whether it's strictly something he dons for the bank robberies."

The unidentified suspect has been described as 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 10 inches tall male, weighing around 170 pounds.
