ROY — The Bucket List Bandit has robbed another bank, this time striking in Bloomington, Ill.
The robber, nicknamed because he passed a threatening note to a teller at a Wells Fargo Bank at 5603 S. 1900 West in Roy on July 6 claiming he only had four months to live, is now a suspect in a Friday robbery at a PNC Bank in Bloomington.
In addition to the Roy and Bloomington robberies, the man is suspected of bank heists in Arvada, Colo.; Flagstaff, Ariz; Pocatello, Idaho; Winston-Salem, N.C.; and Chattanooga, Tenn. since early July.
“Everybody is trying to see what his next move is,” Brad Ware, a spokesman for the FBI’s Springfield, Ill., Division, said in a phone interview Thursday.
Roy Police Chief Gregory G. Whinham could not be reached for comment regarding the Bucket List Bandit’s string of robberies.
No one has been injured in any of the heists.
Each time, the robber has entered the bank and presented a teller a note demanding cash. He has also been seen with a black, zippered portfolio. He is described as white, 5 feet 6 inches to 6 feet 2 inches tall, 55 to 60 years old, with a thin build, gray hair and a mustache. He has been seen wearing glasses, jeans and a blue polo or T-shirt.
In North Carolina and Illinois, the robber was seen with a black Chevrolet Captiva, with a silver rack on the roof.
