The FBI is asking for help identifying a suspect linked to at least three North State bank robberies over the past 6 months.
The suspect, who is being referred to by the FBI as the "Bad Breath Bandit", most recently robbed the Tri Counties Bank at 9411 Midway in Durham on November 13. Investigators believe the same man is responsible for similar robberies in Los Molinos on September 25, and Nevada City on June 17.
In all three robberies the suspect has carried a backpack, wore a disposable paper face mask, sunglasses and a black San Francisco Giants hat. In the two most recent heists the man brandished a handgun at the teller.
The "Bad Breath Bandit" is described as a white male with dark hair, he's around 6-feet tall and approximately 210-250 pounds.
