Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a bank robber who apparently uses military-type black face paint to help disguise himself.
Investigators think he has robbed three Fort Worth banks in recent weeks.
The latest robbery occurred about 11:30 a.m. Thursday at the Pinnacle Bank at 4313 Western Center Boulevard. The robber wore dark sunglasses, a hat and what appeared to be military-type black paint on his face, according to Detective M. Baggott. The paint, Baggott said, was not evenly applied and appeared blotchy.
A witness told investigators that the man also looked as if he had padding around his belly to make himself appear heavier.
He is a thin Anglo man in his 40s who is 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall and has light facial hair and tanned skin. He wore a black long-sleeve pullover over a white T-shirt, baggy black pants and white tennis shoes, police said.
Based on his appearance and method of operation, investigators believe the same man may have robbed the Wells Fargo at 8624 N. Beach St. on April 11 and the Legend Bank at 3001 Western Center Blvd. on March 7.
