Loan Ranger Bandit Sought by FBI
$10,000 Reward Announced

FBI Dallas June 13, 2013
  • Public Affairs Specialist Allison Mahan (972) 559-5000

The FBI and local police in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas are seeking a serial armed bank robber dubbed the Loan Ranger Bandit.

During the robberies, the armed man, who does not attempt to disguise his face, displayed a note demanding 20s, 50s, and 100s and received an undisclosed amount of money. To date, no one has been physically harmed.

The robber is described as a white male in his early 30s, approximately 5’7” to 6’0” tall, approximately 200 pounds, with a medium build. He has short light brown hair, wears glasses, and has a small mole or mark just above his right eye on the lower part of his forehead. His varied clothing styles have included athletic wear, jeans, and business attire. He was dubbed the Loan Ranger Bandit for the blue Texas Rangers baseball cap he has worn while robbing banking institutions where loans are offered.

The suspect may drive a maroon Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck with a thin white pinstripe around the truck bed.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous. A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this robber. If you have any information concerning this case, please call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit a tip online at http://tips.fbi.gov.
