PHOENIX - The FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force is seeking the public's assistance in identifying a person known as the Color Me Bad Bandit, who is responsible for four East Valley credit union robberies.
Phoenix FBI Special Agent in Charge James L. Turgal Jr. says the suspect is described as white or Hispanic female with dark features in her late 20s or early 30s, around 5 feet tall and weighing 140 pounds.
The suspect brings a large bag into the credit unions and uses a note to threaten workers and demand money.
The Color Me Bad Bandit wore a long, leopard print cape and had a large, black bag during the most recent robbery on August 16. Long scarves or hats and sunglasses are always used to attempt to conceal her identity.
If anyone has any information regarding the Color Me Bad Bandit, contact the FBI at 623-466-1999 or www.BanditTrackerArizona.com .
