FBI: Grandpa bandit is still at it, 20 banks robbed

Press Release

ATLANTA -  Acting Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Jeffrey C. Mazanec, FBI Atlanta, requests the public's assistance in identifying and locating a serial bank robber, dubbed the "Granddad Bandit" that has robbed at least twenty banks in 12 states to date.

Beginning on January 16, 2009, at Mobile, Alabama, an unknown white male, approximate age between 50-60 years old, began a bank robbery spree that has taken him to Georgia, Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, New York, and Florida and other Southeastern U.S. States.

 His robberies are described as being calm, with a deliberate attempt to not attract attention to himself.  The robber quietly presents a demand note to the victim teller and thereafter departs the bank without disruption to normal banking business going on around him. 

 This same individual robbed the Bank of America, located at 1280 West Paces Ferry Road, Atlanta, Georgia, at 2:02 p.m. on April 2, 2010.

This is the fourth bank robbery in the Atlanta area attributed to the Granddad Bandit.

The robber is described as follows:

            Race: White
            Sex:   Male
            Age:  50-60 years of age
            Hgt:  6'0" - 6'4"
            Wgt:  220-250 lbs.
            Build: Stocky
            Hair:  bald with short gray hair on side
            Misc: prescription glasses

There is a $10,000 reward being offered by law enforcement in this matter. Anyone with information should call the Atlanta FBI  at (404) 679-9000.
