The serial bank robber is described as a white male in his 40s to early 50s, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and with a medium build. The FBI says he’s worn a baseball hat covered with a hooded jacket in each robbery.

He has passed a note to tellers and threatened a weapon in each robbery, according to officials.
