The Mesh Mask Bandit is believed to have pulled off another heist.

FBI officials say they believe the bank robber dubbed Mesh Mask Bandit robbed a Plano Chase Bank on Tuesday afternoon.

It would tie the man to 18 North Texas bank robberies, the FBI said.

The first robbery happened on New Year's Eve.

The latest robbery happened at about 1:30 p.m. at the Chase Bank in the 5000 block of West Park, a Plano investigator said.

The robber walked into the bank with his gun drawn and ordered everyone on the ground, the investigator said. With his trademark mask covering his face, he grabbed money from the tellers and then sneaked out the south entrance of the bank.

Anyone with information can call the Dallas office of the FBI at 972-559-5000.
