The FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force and the Fairfax County Police are searching for an unknown serial bank robber called the “Forever Loyal Bandit,” who they believe is responsible for three bank robberies and an attempted bank robbery in the Falls Church section of Fairfax County over the summer. The incidents occurred between June and August 2014 at various banks along the Leesburg Pike corridor.

In addition, he wears a dark baseball hat pulled low over his face during the robberies. The word “VIBES” is printed on the hat in one robbery and it appears the lettering has been darkened in a subsequent incident to obscure his identity.

The series of robberies started on Friday, June 27, 2014, at the Capital One Bank located at 5851 Crossroads Center in Falls Church. The next robbery occurred on Monday, July 21, 2014, at the Capital One Bank located at 6367 Seven Corners Center in Falls Church. The final robbery took place on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, at the SunTrust Bank located at 5821 Crossroads Center in Falls Church.

The individual is also alleged to have attempted a robbery of the BB&T Bank located at 5871 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church on Friday, Aug. 15, 2014. During that time period, there were numerous suspicious person calls made to police at area banks involving the same subject.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this individual. More photos of the individual are below.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI’s Washington, D.C. bureau at 202-278-2000, the Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131, or Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477). For more information, visit bankrobbers.fbi.gov.
