Wanted: 'Jimmy Buffett Bandit'

Wanted: 'Jimmy Buffett Bandit' (September 28, 2012)

UPDATE: He's hit again, and changed his look with the season, replacing the tropical shirt he wore in his summer hit, with ski wear in his latest bank robbery in Bellevue.

 

UPDATE --10/5/12-- The "Jimmy Buffett Bandit" is back!
Don't know if he's been "wasting away in Margaritaville" between the two heists he's accused of now, but one thing's for sure - he's lost his tropical look - ditching his Hawaiian shirt for a fall-weather jacket. CLICK HERE  to see the new photo of him snapped Tuesday when he robbed the Homestreet Bank in north Seattle's Wedgewood neighborhood -- literally down the street from the first bank he hit early last month.

 

---ORIGINAL CASE 9/28/12---

 

A wanted, armed bank robber's tropical shirt has us dubbing him the 'Jimmy Buffett Bandit'.

Not sure if he's a true ‘Parrothead’, or needed the cash to buy a ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’ when he robbed a bank in north Seattle earlier this month -- but, other than his nickname and that fake ponytail he's sporting, there's nothing funny about this guy who the FBI considers 'armed and dangerous.'

Here are the details on the ‘JIMMY BUFFETT BANDIT’:

  • Age: 30+
  • Ht: 6’0”
  • Wt: Slim build
  • Goatee
  • Possible ponytail, but likely fake
  • Wearing blue Hawaiian shirt
