COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Not a great way to show your Buckeye Pride.
The FBI and local police are asking for help identifying a suspect in up to 20 bank robberies in central Ohio who they’ve dubbed the “Buckeye Bandit”. Authorities held a Friday briefing on the history of the case and developments in the robberies that happened between 2013 and this year.
Investigators say the individual they’re seeking is a suspect in robberies in Columbus, the suburbs of Gahanna, Worthington and Upper Arlington and at Ohio State University. He’s also suspected of robbing a Columbus pharmacy three times.
The FBI says the suspect wore Ohio State apparel during several robberies and more recently has worn winter clothes including a scarf around his face. Investigators say the man often displays a handgun.
