Here in the QC he's known as the Hy-Vee bank robber but the FBI has dubbed him the Ray Bandit because of Ray Ban sunglasses glasses.
He's hit the QCA three times but thirteen times total from California to Virginia.
The FBI is offering $5,000 for tips that lead to his arrest. The first of the QC heists was in late August at a Moline Hy-Vee. After hitting up some other Illinois banks the bandit doubled back in September to hit Milan and Bettendorf.
Bettendorf Police Chief Phil Redington says now that the FBI has taken over, they have better hopes of catching the Ray Bandit.
"The FBI is a good agency to work with they have resources that a local police dept doesn't have as far as communication and manpower across the whole country"
So far the investigation has stirred up a lot of information. Tellers at all the banks say the bandit wore band aids on his fingertips. He generally wears Ray Ban style sunglasses, long sleeve shirts, and has used a tan Hyundai Elantra as a get away car in almost all of the robberies.
Redington says he has faith in the FBI.
If you have any information on the Ray Bandit you're asked to call police.
