ST. GEORGE — The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance Wednesday in identifying a serial bank robber – dubbed the “The Great Outdoors Bandit” – who struck three more banks on Monday, subsequently providing authorities with clearer photos of the suspect’s face.
The FBI believes “The Great Outdoors Bandit” has robbed or attempted to hold up at least seven banks or credit unions in Idaho and Utah over the past eight months.
On Monday, the suspect hit three banks in Idaho and is believed to be traveling in a black crossover SUV with Utah license plates, Sandra Yi Barker, Public Affairs Specialist for the FBI Salt Lake City Division, said in a statement.
“There is a clear photo of the man without disguise, taken Aug. 7, when he went into another Idaho bank to try and exchange cash,” Barker said.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the alleged serial bank robber.
Anyone with information regarding these robberies is encouraged to call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 833-291-4306.
