The reward for the capture of the bank robber known as the "Handsome Guy Bandit" increased to $8,000 this week.

The Texas Bankers Foundation is offering $3,000 and the North Texas Crime Commission is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the serial bank robber who uses a realistic latex mask to conceal his identity.

The "Handsome Guy Bandit" is believed to be responsible for at least six bank robberies in four North Texas in four months including one in Irving, one in Richardson, two in Plano and two in Dallas.

The most recent robbery was at the First Community Bank in Richardson in July.

Police are concerned his crimes are becoming more brazen. In his early robberies he only passed the teller a note, police said in his later robberies he added a Glock semi-automatic handgun. 

The "Handsome Guy Bandit" is described as a white male, approximately 6-feet tall. He wears an $800 special effects mask that makes him appear to be bald. Surveillance photos and videos show him often wearing glasses or sunglasses.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the FBI at (972)559-5000 or the North Texas Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-8477. Your identity will remain anonymous.
