PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – The FBI believes that early Tuesday afternoon the man known as the ‘Mesh Mask Bandit’ struck again, this time at a bank in Plano.

Investigators say a man robbed the Chase Bank on West Park boulevard in the middle of the day at gun point. David Tilley with Plano Police says the man was wearing a black mask, and dressed all in black, similar attire to what the ‘Mesh Mask Bandit’ wears.

Witnesses describe the man as being approximately 5’8”- 5’10” tall, 180-200 pounds with a medium build.

Authorities say the ‘Mesh Masked Bandit” started sticking up North Texas banks in December of last year and is responsible for more than 18 robberies from Dallas to Carrollton.

The FBI is currently offering a $20,000 reward for any tips leading to the capture of the suspect.

Anyone with information on this robbery or any others can call Crime Stoppers 817-469-TIPS (8477).
