“We do consider him to be armed and dangerous because in a couple of roberries, he’s displayed a weapon an din other robberies, he’s simulated a weapon and made threatening statements to the teller,” said FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth.  “We want him off the streets sooner than later.”

FBI investigators say that the thirtysomething man most recently held up a Chase Bank in San Diego on Friday.

“The suspect approached a teller, simulated a weapon and demanded cash,” the FBI said in a statement.

With cash in hand, the man left in either a black Lexus or Mercedes Benz.  Police believe this is the third time he has  hit this particular bank.

Since May of last year, the FBI believes the man is responsible for 10 bank robberies in the San Diego area. He is described as a black man in his thirties, over 6 feet and around 220 pounds.

When he covers his face, he uses a black handkerchief. He switches up the hats he wears — sometimes a baseball cap and other times a newsboy cap.
