FBI: 'Boonie Hat Bandit' strikes again in Missouri
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The FBI believes the so-called "Boonie Hat Bandit" is at it again.
The man believed to be in his mid-40s is suspected in nine St. Louis area bank robberies since November, including two that happened on Monday. The latest robberies occurred at a Commerce Bank in Chesterfield and, just over two hours later, at a Bank of America in St. Peters.
No one was hurt in either crime. It wasn't known how much money the robber got.
The robber earned the nickname because he twice wore a military style "Boonie" hat during robberies. He was not wearing the hat in either crime on Monday.
The suspect is described as white, about 6 feet tall and clean-shaven. The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for his capture and conviction.
