WASHINGTON — The FBI is searching for a heavily bandaged man wanted in connection with nine bank robberies in Maryland in a six-month period.
Investigators say they believe the same man is responsible for the robberies around the state from October 2015 through April 1, 2016.
The man is described as a black man about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and around 160 pounds. More distinguishing is that during the robberies he wears eye glasses, a neck brace and bandages on his face.
