on Dec. 30, 2009, wearing dark sunglasses, a black jacket and a

allegedly was carrying a portfolio to transport the money, as he
had done in other robberies, leading police to nickname him the
“Portfolio Bandit.” Kathy Wright, spokeswoman for the FBI, said he
was considered armed and dangerous, even though he had not
brandished a weapon.
