The FBI has increased its reward for information leading to the arrest of a serial bank robber known as the "time bandit." The agency is now offering $40,000 for the suspect wanted for the armed robberies of at least 11 banks in the south and southwest suburbs since 2005.

Surveillance cameras captured pictures from the most recent robbery which took place last month in Homer Glen. He's called the "time bandit" because he always orders employees to count to 300 before calling for help.

Anyone with information on this suspect is asked to contact the Chicago office of the FBI.
