A prolific bank robber has popped up again after an almost two-year hiatus, continuing a streak of at least 16 robberies since 2009.

The suspect, dubbed the “Too Tall Bandit,” has hit banks across Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina, and at least two a year between 2014 and 2019.

After the most recent robbery on Nov. 27 at the United Community Bank in Etowah, North Carolina, the FBI has renewed calls for information and released a video of the bandit Wednesday.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 40 years old, standing between 6′0″ to 6′6″ tall and between 210 and 250 pounds, according to officials. He speaks with a deep voice and walks with a limp in his right leg.

He has been disguised with a mask, goat and gloves in each robbery and is armed with a black handgun.
