BREAKING: Stylish South Florida bank robber strikes again


A stylish man wanted in connection to a series of bank robberies in Palm Beach County has struck again, this time in Miami-Dade County, authorities said Monday.

The robbery occurred Friday at a TD Bank location in Miami Lakes. Investigators believe the man was also responsible for robberies that occurred last month at two banks in Boca Raton and one in Palm Beach Gardens, FBI spokesman James Marshall said.

The Boca Raton banks were a SunTrust branch at Glades Road and Florida’s Turnpike on Nov. 7 and a Wells Fargo branch at Glades and Lyons roads on Nov. 17. Between them came a robbery at the PNC Bank branch on Military Trail just north of PGA Boulevard on Nov. 10.

Authorities have called the man the “Business Bandit” because of his professional attire.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to contact the FBI at 754-703-2000, or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS (8477).
