Quincy/Braintree: FBI seeks public help to ID bank robber

The FBI is seeking public help to identify a serial bank robber they nicknamed “The Brim Beanie Bandit,” alleging he successfully stole from four banks and attempted to raid a fifth in less than two weeks.

The FBI describes the alleged robber as about 5-foot-seven, weighing 150 pounds and believed to be in his late 40s or early 50s.

They say the suspect has robbed banks while wearing a dark sweatshirt or jacket, black pants, black gloves and dark brown or black boots or shoes with a black and/or grey brim beanie cap.

Authorities say the Brim Beanie Bandit enters the bank, approaches the teller and either shows or leaves a note asking for money.

The FBI says the banks he robbed are in Quincy, Stoughton, Needham, Braintree and Boston’s neighborhood of Dorchester.

Anyone with information on the bandit is urged to contact authorities.
