RICHMOND, W.Va. (WDTV) -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Richmond Field Office is asking the public’s help identifying a man that is believed to be responsible for a series of bank robberies.

Six robberies occurred from September 2017 to January 2018 in Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Texas.

During the robberies, the suspect-whom investigators have nicknamed “The Chameleon Beard Bandit”-produced demanding notes and showed or threatened that he had a handgun.

The subject is described as a white male that is approximately 5’11” to 6’2”, approximately 180 to 240 pounds, and in his mid to late 30’s. He is described to have a medium build, brown eyes and hair, and a light complexion. Officials say the subject also wears glasses and frequently changes the color of his beard.

The Richmond Division of the FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

Anyone with information regarding these crimes may contact investigators of the Richmond FBI’s Central Virginia Violent Crimes Task Force at 804-261-1044.
