ERIE, Pa. (AP) — An man dubbed the Bucket List Bandit after telling a Utah bank teller he had only four months to live has struck again, this time in northwestern Pennsylvania.
The FBI says surveillance video indicates the man who robbed the Huntingdon National Bank in Erie on Monday is the same man responsible for nine previous heists in eight other states since June 21. That’s when the man robbed a bank in Arvada, Colo.
The white man, with thinning gray hair, glasses, and a faded blue polo shirt enters the banks and uses a note claiming to have a gun, though he has yet to produce one.
The unknown bandit got his nickname after the July 6 heist of a Wells Fargo Bank in Roy, Utah.
He’s also wanted in Arizona, Idaho, North Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois and Missouri. Published in The Messenger 9.12.12
