The FBI has identified a man suspected of robbing at least six Chicago-area banks since November, and is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Kenneth F. White II is suspected of robbing an MB Financial Bank branch in the 2200 block of North Waukegan Road in north suburban Glenview on Monday, according to the FBI.

White, 34, is suspected of robbing five other banks since early November, typically wearing blue jeans, a gray hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap, the FBI said.

Authorities believe he first struck Nov. 5, allegedly robbing a Popular Community Bank branch in the 7100 block of West Irving Park Road, according to the FBI.

He is also suspected of robbing the Glenview State Bank branch in the 1800 block of South Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights on Nov. 23, the TCF Bank branch in the 2300 block of North Harlem Avenue on Nov. 15, the Harris Bank branch in the 600 block of Busse Highway in Park Ridge on Nov. 9, and the TCF Bank branch in the 1400 block of West Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows on Oct. 26.

Each incident is described as a "non takeover robbery," according to the FBI.

He is 6-foot-3 and 150 pounds with a thin build, authorities said. He has a tattoo of a dragon and Chinese writing on his left arm, and several other tattoos on his right arm.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction. Anyone with information should call the FBI Chicago at (312) 421-6700.
