Police, FBI searching for "Blues Bandit" serial bank robbery suspect

- Phoenix Police, along with the FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force, are asking for the public's help, as they search for a suspect who is wanted for as many as eight armed robberies of Phoenix banks, since October.

According to authorities, in seven of those incidents, the banks involved were inside Walmart stores. The suspect has been dubbed the "Blues Bandit", because police said he dresses like a character from the movie with the same name.

The suspect is described as a White or Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s, 5'7" tall, weighing dress clothes, a black fedora, and glasses. In each of the case, he enters the a store with a bank branch, and hands the employee at the bank a robbery note.

The suspect, according to Police, has used a four-door red or maroon sedan, or a white Tahoe-style SUV. Police believe the suspect is armed.
