    Authorities are looking for a serial bank robber being dubbed the "one minute bandit" after 10 robberies in the Boston area.

    (Published Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017)

    The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect they've dubbed the "One Minute Bandit" - a man they say is responsible for robbing 10 banks in the Greater Boston area.

    During each of the robberies, the suspect passed notes to the tellers, threatened a weapon and demanded cash. He told each teller they had exactly one minute to empty their drawers and turn over whatever money they had.

    The suspect is believed to be in his 40s to early 50s, about 5'7" to 5'8" tall, with a medium build. In each robbery, he was seen wearing a baseball hat covered by a hooded jacket.

    He is believed to be responsible for the following bank robberies from December 2016 to July 2017 in Boston, Cambridge and Somerville:

    • Dec. 6, 2016 at 2:53 p.m.: Citizens Bank, 73 Tremont St., Boston.
