They call him the “Furry Mask Bandit,” and the serial bank robber has hit four banks, including the same one twice, in the last seven months in Maryland and Northern Virginia, the FBI says.

The bureau is offering a $5,000 reward for information in identifying the man who they said wears a sweatshirt, sunglasses and a furry mask or wig in his heists.

The latest robbery happened May 8.

FBI officials said the robber does pretty much the same routine each time. He goes into a bank and up to the counter before passing the teller a note demanding money. He asks mostly for $100 bills, the FBI said in a statement.
