Have you seen this fabulously coiffed individual? The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Charlotte, North Carolina say a bank robber targeted these locations in the region in December and January. They’ve dubbed this suspect the “Bad Wig Bandit.” Now they need your help in solving the case.
- The first robbery happened December 13, 2019 at a BB&T Bank in Hunstersville, says the FBI. As indicated in the wanted poster, the suspect wore a blonde wig featuring straight hair and trimmed bangs.
The “Bad Wig Bandit” was apparently pretty busy on Wednesday. The FBI says there were two robberies that day.
- The second incident occurred at the New Horizon Bank in Belmont. Here, the suspect adopts a way more “emo” look: long velvet-colored hair, with a hood obscuring the person’s face.
- The third incident happened five hours later at a Wells Fargo in Gastonia, said the FBI. This time, a camera caught what seems to be the clearest available view of the Bandit’s face. This time, the suspect is in a black wig featuring curls.
The FBI describes the “Bad Wig Bandit” as a black man, with a medium build, in his 20s or 30s.
