Police in Phoenix looking for '$60 Bill Bandit'
GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) - January 7, 2011 -- Police in the Phoenix area are looking for a bank robbery suspect they've dubbed the "$60 Bill Bandit" because he once asked a teller for $40 and $60 bills - denominations that aren't printed.
A local television station reports that the robber is wanted in connection with four bank robberies in four cities since October.
The most recent holdup was Dec. 23 when the suspect walked into a Gilbert Bank of America and handed the teller a note saying he was armed and wanted money. The teller gave him an unknown amount of cash.
Police say the nickname comes from the robber earlier asking a teller for all the $20s, $40s and $60s.
