Update: FBI Says Bucket List Bandit Strikes Again in Pennsylvania
The FBI is seeking public help in identifying a serial bank robber who has allegedly robbed at least 10 banks, including Lindell Bank on Highway K in O'Fallon.
The "Bucket List Bandit" has struck again in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Monday, Sept.10, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
FBI officials said they believe the suspect is the same man who allegedly robbed at least nine other banks in the western and southern United States since June, including the Lindell Bank at 4251 Highway K in O'Fallon on Thursday, Aug. 30.
According to O'Fallon Police, they received a call to the bank at 12:59 p.m. The suspect said he had a gun, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured.
O'Fallon Police continue to work closely with the FBI to continue investigating the case.
O'Fallon Police responded to a call at Lindell Bank at 12:59 p.m. on Aug. 30. Police reported the suspect told the teller he had a gun and left with an undisclosed amount of cash, but no one was injured.
St. Louis FBI Public Affairs Specialist Rebecca Wu previously told O'Fallon Patch, the robber got his name because during an earlier robbery, he allegedly told a teller he had four months to live.
According to the FBI, during each robbery linked to the "Bucket List Bandit," a man enters the bank alone, approaches the teller and presents a demand note.
The suspect is described as a white male, in his 50s, 5’10”, 180 lbs, mustache, balding and wearing glasses.
He has also been known to carry a black, zippered portfolio and is normally seen wearing jeans and a blue polo shirt or blue T-shirt.
According to the FBI, the suspect was seen driving a black compact SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Captiva or similar model, with a silver rack on the roof at several of the robberies.
The FBI is featuring photos of the “Bucket List Bandit” on digital billboards across the country, including two panels along Interstate 70 near Lambert St. Louis International Airport.
"The picture is clear enough, so whoever knows him, can identify him," Wu previously told O'Fallon Patch.
Any information regarding these bank robberies or any other bank robberies should be directed to the nearest FBI office. O'Fallon residents are urged to contact Det. Brian Buchanan, at (636) 379-5687, or the O’Fallon Police Department, at (636) 240-3200. The public can also report information to the FBI at 412-432-4000.
