BOSTON (CBS) — A man responsible for at least eight bank robberies in and around Boston is wanted by the FBI.
Officials dubbed the man ‘Route 128 Bandit’ because all of his accused crimes have taken place along the highway.
At least eight robberies and one attempted robbery between July and October 2017 have been connected to the Route 128 Bandit. He was also behind an attempted robbery from June 2016.
“Each time, the robber passed a note and threatened a weapon, however he is not believed to be armed & dangerous,” said the FBI Wanted poster.
The suspect is a 30 to 40-year-old man, with a medium complexion, height, weight, and build. He also has dark hair and eyes. Typically, he wears a long-sleeve t-shirt, a dark hat, and dark pants.
