Waco-- The "'I-35 Bandit", as police are calling him, has struck again. He has now been involved in as many as 17 armed robberies since 2004. His most recent robbery took place in Little River Academy at the local bank.

The bandit has many different disguises that make him more difficult to stop. He has been caught on surveillance cameras wearing different wigs and beards while he holds a gun to his victim demanding money.

The FBI is look at previous leads, including information from his most recent robbery on September 9th. Norm Townsend, Special Agent with the FBI in Waco said, "It's knowing his method of operation is what tips us off as to who this particular robber is. Again, were being proactive and were going to exhaust, you know, all effort trying to to apprehend this person."

Before his robbery in Little River Academy, the bandit has not been active in the last year. However, this previously cold case, is now being fully investigated again, with new released information and video footage.

Up to this point, there have been no known injuries during his robberies, but FBI agents say he is considered armed and dangerous.
