SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento Violent Crimes Task Force (SVCTF) is seeking help from the public to identify a man suspected of robbing three Sacramento area banks during the past two months. The dates of the robberies and locations that have been struck by the “Bad Hatter Bandit” are as follows:

• Nov. 29, 2012: Chase Bank at 3501 Del Paso Blvd., Sacramento
• Jan. 10: Chase Bank at 1800 Douglas Blvd., Roseville
• Jan. 29: Chase Bank at 3501 Del Paso Blvd., Sacramento

The Bad Hatter Bandit is a black male standing 5-foot 7 inches to 5-foot 9 inches with a small build. While his attire has changed frequently, the suspect arrived at each location with a leather folio and wearing one of a variety of black hats. A note or verbal demand for cash was issued in each of the robberies and the suspect indicated that he was armed.

A second, black male standing 5-foot 9 inches to 5-foot 11 inches who has an average build accompanied the primary suspect into the bank during the robbery in Sacramento on Jan. 29. This second suspect approached the teller, and told her that he had a weapon.

According to witnesses, additional accomplices have been seen in the Bad Hatter Bandit’s getaway vehicles. To date, all vehicles used for the commission of the robberies have been stolen and a different vehicle was used for each robbery. While no weapon was seen in any of the three robberies, the suspects are considered armed and dangerous due to the verbal threats.

The cases are being investigated by the SVCTF, FBI, Roseville Police Department and Sacramento Police Department. Additional details and photos are available on the FBI’s new Wanted Bank Robbers Website: bankrobbers.fbi.gov.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery is asked to contact the FBI in Sacramento at 916-481-9110, Crime Alert at 916-443-HELP, Roseville Crime Stoppers at 916-783-7867, Roseville Police Department or Sacramento Police Department.

Callers who provide information to Crime Alert and Roseville Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
