SAN DIEGO – A serial robber dubbed the “Bag Trick Bandit” remains on the loose and struck again on Sunday FBI officials said.
The San Diego Police Department and the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect responsible for five separate bank robberies, two at the same location in the San Diego area.
The crime spree began just before Christmas when the “Bag Trick Bandit” attempted to rob a Bank of America in the 2300 block of Ulric Street and the same day, robbed a U.S. Bank in the 4190 block of Genesee Avenue both in San Diego.
Several weeks passed, but on January 5, 2017, the “Bag Trick Bandit” attempted to rob a Wells Fargo Bank in the 4700 Clairemont Drive in San Diego. On both January 8, 2017, and January 22, 2017, the “Bag Trick Bandit” robbed the U.S. Bank Branch on the 3600 block of Midway Drive in San Diego.
During both the January 8th and January 22nd robberies the unidentified suspect used a semi-automatic handgun. The “Bag Trick Bandit” should be considered armed and dangerous. He is described as a White man, approximately 30-years-old. 6’ tall, thin build, with dirty blonde hair. He is known to wear a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with the hood covering his head. He also has worn a hat and sunglasses in order to conceal his identity.
