The FBI is asking the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed four Sacramento-area banks in recent months.
The same person has been linked to robberies April 25 at West America Bank, 1610 Arden Way, Sacramento; May 29 at US Bank, 3320 Arden Way, Sacramento; June 11 at US Bank, 4040 Manzanita Ave., Carmichael; and Wednesday at Bank of the West, 2581 Fair Oaks Blvd., Sacramento.
The man is thought to be in his 20s or 30s. He is described as 6 feet tall and slender, according to an FBI news release. He has worn a variety of clothes and has worn a shoulder-length, red-brown wig or a white straw fedora with a hat band featuring alternating stripes. He also has worn glasses with tinted lenses.
During the four robberies, the man brandished a black handgun, or indicated that he had a gun, and demanded money from tellers. After receiving money, he put it in a bag. During the April 25 and May 29 robberies, he used a tan fabric tote with a stiff, round handle. During the June robberies, he used a royal blue fabric bag, authorities said.
Never miss a local story.
In addition to the FBI, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and Sacramento Police Department are investigating the robberies.
