The Federal Bureau of Investagation is offering a $5,000 reward for help catching the may they nicknamed the "Doo-Rag Bandit."

You would think that the man the FBI said has robbed at least seven banks in Fort Worth since late December wears a doo-rag EVERY TIME, right? Wrong. Sometimes he wears a Dallas Cowboys baseball cap.

So we ask doo what? Why the name "Doo-Rag Bandit" for a guy who sometimes conducts the holdup while showing his support for America's Team?

Special Agent Mark D. White tells us, "these monikers usually come up during the first few robberies. It is common for robbers to change appearance but the monikers usually stick."

Either way, the FBI wants you to look at the pictures and see if you know the man who may or may not be wearing a doo-rag right now. If you know him and agents arrest him, you could get yourself $5,000.

As far as his description goes, there are two traits that are known for sure, he's male and black. Otherwise there's somewhat specific information is that he's between 30 and 35 years old, between 6'0" and 6'2" tall and weighs anywhere from 185 to 200 pounds.

The FBI said the "Doo-Rag Bandit" likes to strike more than once, according to the FBI he's robbed three Fort Worth Bank of Americas twice each.

If you have information on the "Doo-Rag Bandit" the FBI wants to hear from you call 972-559-5000.
