“Cotton Ball Bandit.” The middle-aged white man is suspected of robbing seven banks in the Marin County since December 12. He has worn a brown, knit beanie with earflaps and a “cotton ball” on top during the heists, FBI spokeswoman Julianne Sohn said.
He has also been seen wearing a black raincoat, black leather gloves and eyeglasses. In the robberies, the suspect enters a bank and gives a teller a demand note, then flees with the cash. The most recent robbery was of a Redwood Credit Union in San Rafael on Sept. 4.
He also is suspected of robbing a Wells Fargo Bank and Chase Bank in Corte Madera, a Citibank and Union Bank in Mill Valley and a Union Bank and Chase Bank in Greenbrae. The suspect is described as being between 40 and 50 years old, 6 feet tall with a medium build, and having blond hair and scruffy facial hair, Sohn said. The FBI has released photos of the suspected robber.
