According to the Tyler Police Department, the so-called "Loan Ranger Bandit" has struck again in Texas.

On November 8, a man who appeared to be the Loan Ranger Bandit robbed Extraco Bank in Lampasas. Lampasas is located about 90 miles southwest of Waco.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations, along with multiple law enforcement agencies in Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, and Kentucky, continue to seek the identity and whereabouts of this unknown white male suspect. A $10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his identity and location.

Before striking the bank in Lampasas, the bandit robbed Sante Fe Community Credit Union in Temple on July 12. Around 9 a.m., he entered the location and robbed the bank at gunpoint.

On May 10, a suspect matching the Loan Ranger Bandit's description robbed a bank in Louisville, Kentucky.

The bandit has developed a pattern to return to the same areas where he has robbed banks in the past. On August 11, 2011, he struck Altra Federal Credit Union on Troup Highway in Tyler. On May 17, 2012, he robbed Compass Bank, located on Broadway Avenue.

Police is asking the public, and especially bank tellers, to remain vigilant and to be on the look out for the bandit. He has displayed a handgun during each of his robberies and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who observes this suspect is asked to dial 911 immediately.
