The FBI says this man, known as the "Duffel Bag Bandit," has robbed six banks in Idaho and Utah.


The FBI is offering a reward of $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man accused of robbing banks in Idaho and Utah.

They said the “Duffel Bag Bandit” has hit six banks since December: three banks in Boise, one in Garden City, one in Salt Lake City and, most recently, a bank in St. George in March.

The FBI said he's 50 to 60 years old with short gray hair, between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet tall and weighs between 145 to 180 pounds.
