Wells Fargo Bank is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading up to the arrest and conviction of a man who has committed eight robberies at numerous branches throughout the East Valley since Nov. 23, including robbing a branch in Gilbert twice.

FBI investigators believe the robberies were committed by the same suspect, whom they have dubbed the “Black Binder Bandit” because he carries a black binder or black bag when approaching bank tellers and has been seen on video surveillance wearing different caps or hats and sunglasses.

In addition to robbing banks throughout Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and Tempe, the man also robbed a branch of Bank of America at 2998 N. Alma School Road in Chandler on Jan. 7.

If anyone has any information, they can call the FBI at (602) 279-5511.
