FBI now involved in serial robber case

TUCSON - The FBI is now involved in the search for a serial bank robber they call Smokey the Bandit.

The man is accused of robbing 6 banks in both the Phoenix and Tucson area, 5 in August alone.

Investigators say he wears a baseball cap and sunglasses during the robberies and gives the teller a note demanding money.

He appears to be between 45-55 years old and between 5'8" and 5'11" with a medium build.

The suspect has been described as a very tan white male with brown hair, a gray goatee, and rough hands.

Witnesses say he smells like cigarettes, so the FBI is referring to him as Smokey the Bandit.

They say he was seen fleaing a robbery in a silver two door Ford pickup truck with a possible rectangular emblem or advertisement on the driver's side door.

If you have any information on the Subject contact the FBI at 623-466-1999 or www.BanditTrackerArizona.com.
