Police searching for 'Foul Mouth Bandit' wanted in several NE Portland bank robberies
PORTLAND, Ore. —
Police are searching for a man they've dubbed the "Foul Mouth Bandit" suspected in several Northeast Portland bank robberies in early April.
The Financial Institution Security Task Force (FIST) is working with the Portland Police Bureau to offer a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
The suspect is described as a 30 to 49-year-old man, 5'10", 185 pounds and a heavy build. Police say the man generally wears glasses, a hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap during the robberies.
He believed to be responsible for the following four robberies:
- April 3 at OnPoint Credit union - 1720 Northeast 9th Avenue
- April 4 at Wells Fargo Bank - 5730 Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
- April 7 at Bank of the West - 905 Northeast 15th Avenue.
- April 7 at Advantis Credit Union - 3515 Northeast 15th Avenue.
The man has implied that he's armed with a gun, but no gun has actually been seen in any of the robberies, police say.
Detectives nicknamed him the 'Foul Mounth Bandit' due to the language he uses during the robberies.
Anyone with information should contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at 503-823-1080.
