FBI seeking alleged bank robber

BURBANK -- The FBI is seeking a man they believe to be responsible

for five bank robberies, including one in the city.

The "9 to 5 Bandit" has worn a dress shirt and tie during some of

the robberies, in which he hands a teller a note that he has a gun

and demands cash in hundreds, fifties and twenties, the FBI said.

The bandit is believed to have robbed the Washington Mutual at 840


N. San Fernando Blvd. in Burbank on July 2. He is also a suspect in

bank robberies in Covina, Whittier, Pasadena and La Verne.

The bandit is described as a male over 6 feet tall weighing

between 190 and 220 pounds with dark hair, a goatee, and a faded

green tattoo on his right hand and the right side of his neck.
