Authorities in North Carolina are looking to identify a bank robber with a bad accessory.

The Charlotte FBI is looking to identify an unknown bank robber they have dubbed the “Bad Wig Bandit”

The Charlotte FBI has dubbed the suspect the “Bad Wig Bandit,” according to a flyer released by the FBI. The agency said the suspect, believed to be a male in his 20s or 30s, is responsible for three bank robberies in the metro area. The robber wore a different wig each time, the FBI said.

On December 13, the flyer says, the bandit hit a Huntersville BB&T Bank, leaving with an undisclosed amount of money while wearing a short blonde wig with bangs.

On Wednesday, the target was a New Horizon Bank in Belmont, where the bank robber wore a long, red wig. Just eight hours later, in a curly, dark-colored wig, the suspect struck again at a Wells Fargo in Gastonia, the flyer said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the FBI.
