'Pick-a-Logo Bandit' strikes 3 Chicago area banks

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification of a suspect in three Chicago area bank robberies.

The "Pick-a-Logo Bandit" earned the nickname by wearing jackets with a variety of logos on the front. He first struck last November at a U.S. Bank branch in the city's West Lawn neighborhood, then again at the same bank in January. The bandit's latest robbery took place on February 27 at a U.S. Bank branch in suburban Hometown.

In each case, the suspect either threatened to have or actually revealed a handgun during the robberies, though the gun was never discharged and no reported injuries in any of the heists.

The suspect is described by witnesses as a male, black, 25-30 years old with a thin build. He has worn a variety of hats during the heists, and is considered by police to be armed and dangerous.

Anyone recognizing the suspect or having information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Chicago office of the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
