FBI seeking robber dubbed 'Loan Ranger Bandit'
LITTLE ROCK— The FBI and police in three states are searching for a bank robber they call the "Loan Ranger Bandit."
The man is suspected of robbing at least 10 banks at gunpoint in Arkansas, Texas and Mississippi from January 2009 to October 2012. The FBI says he walks into the bank undisguised and demands 20, 50, and 100-dollar bills.
No one has been injured — but the man is considered armed and dangerous.
The suspect is white, in his early 30s, 5-feet-7 to 6-feet tall, about 200 pounds with short brown hair. He's called the Loan Ranger Bandit because of a blue Texas Rangers baseball cap he's worn during the robberies.
The robberies were in Benton, Ark.; Tyler, Wichita Falls, Temple, Round Rock, Salado and College Station, Texas; and Madison, Miss.
NOTE FROM THE SALINE COURIER: According to a news source out of Tyler, Texas, this suspect is believed to have started his bank robbing spree in 2009 at Summit Bank in Benton. He then robbed the same bank branch in 2011, according to the source.
