A serial Palm Beach bank robbery suspect sought by the FBI has received the compliment from investigators of a nickname: the Business Bandit.
The nickname comes from the tie and collared shirt surveillance cameras show the suspect wearing during each of his three robberies. When he hit a Boca Raton Wells Fargo branch at 9162 Glades Road on Friday, the suspect added a blue suit jacket to the shirt and tie.
He also added a gun, which is why the FBI considers him armed and dangerous. A firearm hadn’t been visible in the previous two robberies, Nov. 7 at a Boca Raton Sun Trust branch, 7800 Glades Road, and Nov. 10 at a Palm Beach Gardens PNC Bank branch, 10973 N. Military Trail.
This is the second South Florida serial bank robbery suspect in the last two months to get a nickname. The day after releasing photos of the “Shaky Bandit,” the FBI arrested him after he crashed to end a car chase.
