The FBI Dallas Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking the public's help identifying a bank robber dubbed the “Longhorn Bandit.”  

He is believed to be responsible for at least two bank robberies last month in Texas.

The “Longhorn Bandit” entered the Bank of The West, 2400 W. Irving in Irving on Oct. 18. He handed the teller a note written on a deposit slip.  

The note read, “hand me all the loose bills, I have a gun.”

The second robbery occurred Oct. 26 at the EECU credit union, 1253 North Little School Road in Kennedale. He entered the bank, approached the teller and indicated he had a gun.

The “Longhorn Bandit” fled in a dark-colored Chevrolet SUV as a getaway vehicle after both robberies. 

The “Longhorn Bandit” is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s. He is about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 165 to 180 pounds, has a small build, light complexion and brown hair. 

In the first robbery, the “Longhorn Bandit” wore a gray University of Texas sweatshirt, dark shorts, sandals and a gray hat. He wore a plain gray sweatshirt and a gray hat in the second robbery. He has a tattoo on his right calf.

Contact the North Texas Crime Stoppers at 1-877-373-TIPS or the FBI Dallas Division at 972-559-5000 with information. Visit bankrobbers.fbi.gov for additional photographs and information.               A reward of up to $5,000 cash is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the “Longhorn Bandit.”
