DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – The FBI is searching for a dangerous, threatening, bank robber they’ve labeled the “mesh mask bandit.”

He is a suspect in nine bank robberies since New Year’s Eve – one in December, four in January, and four in February – from Dallas to Carrollton.

In each robbery, he’s worn a face-covering mask, made of mesh, which hides his identity.  He also flashes a gun in the robberies, while verbally demanding money.  He’s been seen wearing gloves, the same kind worn by those in the medical field.

The FBI’s description of the robber is vague.  The agency says he has a large build, 5’ 7” to 6’ 2” tall and is believed to be Black or Hispanic.

The mesh mask bandit has heavily targeted Dallas, hitting his first five banks there, throughout the month of January.  Then, he stuck up another bank in Garland, another in Addison and two more in Carrollton.  Three of those robberies happened this week, and investigators fear he is becoming more aggressive and more frequent.

Investigators also say the bandit may have chemical burns or red dye may have gotten on his clothing/skin, as the result of a robbery of a Capital One bank along Forest Lane in Dallas.

Anyone with information is urged to call the FBI at 972-559-5000.
