Posted: Updated:
TYLER (KYTX) -

The FBI and Tyler Police made a joint announcement Thursday involving a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of a bank robber who has become known as the "Loan Ranger Bandit" based on a Texas Rangers hat he wore to one of his robberies.

Tips can be submitted by calling 1-800-CALL-FBI or you can submit a tip online.

"We hope that this will bring them forward, this reward, and make a difference and impact on getting this person located before somebody is seriously hurt in one of these robberies," Tyler Police Chief Gary Swindle said.
 
The man has never attempted to conceal his face during any of ten robberies across Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi.
 
"You know these types of cases, we don't usually get these type of photos. Such clear photos," FBI Special Agent Diego Rodriguez said. "Many of the robbers are masked in any instances and in this case this person is not."

Released by the Dallas Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation:

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.
