PRICE, Utah — The FBI released information Friday on the “traveling bandit,” who is wanted for robbing at least seven banks in six states, with the most recent robbery occurring in Price, Utah.

The suspect has traveled great distances to commit each robbery, the FBI said in a press release.

  • December 28, 2018; Aventura, Florida; Capital Bank
  • January 2, 2019; Asheville, North Carolina; SunTrust Bank
  • January 4, 2019; Johnson City, Tennessee; Mountain Commerce Bank

  • January 14, 2019; Mt. Vernon, Illinois; 5th 3rd Bank
