'Bluetooth Bandit' Bank Robbery Suspect Sought

Posted: Updated:

Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a bank robbery suspect who has been labeled as the "Bluetooth Bandit."

According to the FBI, the suspect was involved in the Sept. 30 robbery of the PNC bank at 763 Neil Ave. in Columbus.

Investigators said that at about 12:25 p.m., an unknown male entered the bank, threatened that he had a bomb and demanded money from the teller.

The teller complied, and the suspect fled the bank through the back door while carrying a black backpack.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 5 inches tall with a medium build. He is between 20 and 30 years old, and was wearing a purple button-up shirt, faded blue jeans, dark shoes, an olive-colored hat, and had a Bluetooth or headphone device in his right ear.

Bank officials are offering a cash reward in exchange for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect involved with the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 614-224-1183 or police at 614-645-4545. All calls will remain anonymous and confidential.
