FBI agents are looking for a bank robber wanted in a series of Northern California holdups.

The robber is suspected of holding up Wells Fargo Bank, 110 Harding Blvd., in Roseville on Aug. 16, U.S. Bank, 2851 Del Paso Road, in Sacramento on Saturday and attempting to rob Chase Bank, 330 E St., in Davis on Thursday.

He is also suspected of holding up banks in Lafayette in Contra Costa County and Napa.

At one of the banks, the man implied he had a gun and threatened to shoot the teller. After tellers handed over cash, the robber left the banks without incident.

The robber is described as white or Latino in his 40s or 50s. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall, has a large build and wears a goatee.
