FBI asks for help identifying bank robbery suspect

The FBI is asking for the public's help identifying the man who robbed a Santa Barbara Bank of America on Nov. 4, 2009. Detectives believe residents living in Santa Barbara and Ventura may know the man in this picture.

Detectives say the suspect entered the bank, walked to the customer kiosk and began writing on a deposit slip. After presenting a demand note to the teller, the suspect left the bank with an unknown amount of cash. The FBI has dubbed the suspect the "Kingpin Bandit" after a witness told agents the suspect looked as though he was about to go bowling.

Witnesses describe the man as a 55-year-old white male, about 5'5" and 150 lbs. with gray hair and a goatee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI 24 hours a day at 1 888 CANT HIDE (or 1 888 226-8443) or the Santa Barbara Police Department.
