FBI announces new reward for the 'AK-47 Bandit'
CHINO, Calif. (AP) -- The FBI says tips leading to the arrest of the `AK-47 Bandit,' who has robbed four banks in three western U.S. states, could result in a $100,000 reward.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says the same man appears to have shot a Chino police officer at one bank robbery in February, before robbing banks in Northern California, Idaho and Washington.
The Idaho robbery took place on November 7, 2012 at the East Idaho Credit Union in Rexburg.
The suspect carries an assault rifle similar to an AK-47 into the banks.
