Federal officials: same thief hits Columbus bank multiple times

Aug 1, 2012

The FBI believes the same man has robbed the same Columbus bank three times in less than two months.

The agency reported that the man who robbed a U.S. Bank branch in east Columbus yesterday matches the description of the suspect who robbed the same bank on June 21 and July 10. In all cases the man covered his face and did not display a weapon when he demanded money. All the robberies took place between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. The suspect is distinctive because he has a large amount of hair covered by a black knit ski cap. In every case, he fled on foot.
