Bad boy: Bureau bird-dogs Braintree bank-busting Brim Beanie Bandit

Brim Beanie Bandit

The FBI reports it's looking for a guy who has robbed or tried to rob five banks in the Boston area this month, including a Bank of America branch on Gallivan Boulevard in Dorchester and a Braintree Cooperative Bank branch in Braintree.

The G-Men have dubbed him the Brim Beanie Bandit because of the style of hats he seems to prefer and because he's a bandit. The bureau adds:

While a weapon not been seen during the commission of any of the robberies, the suspect is considered armed and dangerous.


The alleged robber is a white male, believed to be in his late 40s or early 50s, and approximately 5’7” tall and 150 pounds. During the robberies, he has worn a dark sweatshirt or jacket, black pants, black gloves, and dark brown or black boots/shoes with a black and/or gray brim beanie cap. The Brim Beanie Bandit enters the bank, approaches the teller, and either shows or leaves a note asking for money.
