FBI agents say he got his nickname because he carries the cash away in a blue vinyl or plastic lunch box.
The bank robber is under investigation in two Chicago cases -- a January 18, 2011, robbery at TCF Bank branch, 3570 North Elston Avenue, and a December 20, 2010, robbery at a TCF Bank branch, 4660 West Irving park Road. In the most recent robbery, the Lunch Box Bandit approached a teller and announced the robbery, according to the FBI. He then ordered her to give him large bills. Officials said he left the bank on foot and drove away in a blue or black colored automobile.
The suspect is described as a white male between 5'10" and 6' with a medium build. He wears a black jacket with a hood and a ski mask or scarf around his face.
Anyone recognizing this individual or having any information about these robberies is asked to call the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700.
