The FBI released images of the alleged robber.
The reason he is called the "scarecrow bandit" is because he walked into the bank with a wooden broom stick and threatened employees and customers with it. He also wore a floppy hat with a full brim and plaid flannel shirt.
The most recent robbery was on July 18 at the First Eagle Bank in Hanover Park. The other was at a Citibank branch in Hoffman Estates.
