Bicycle Bandit update

Thats right I believe thats 10 banks now.

BUFORD - The FBI believes a bank robber known as the "Bicycle Bandit" has struck again--this time in Buford.

Special Agent Stephen Emmett says the man robbed the BB&T Bank on Buford Drive Thursday morning and left behind a bicycle nearby.

"That indicates to us that this is most likely the 'Bicycle Bandit' known as an individual responsible for an upwards of nine bank robberies," said Emmett.

He described the man as a white male, in his late 30s to early 40s, wearing a gray sweatshirt that had “Carolina” printed across the front, and a blue baseball cap with a white logo on the front.

Emmett said the "Bicycle Bandit" has also robbed banks in Alpharetta, Roswell, and Cumming.
