CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) - Federal officials are searching for a man suspected of robbing four banks in Illinois and Indiana within the past several months.

FBI officials say the most recent robbery happened Wednesday at a BMO Harris Bank branch in Crown Point, Indiana. The agency says the same man has robbed three other banks since November. The agency says at least one of those banks was robbed at gunpoint.

The FBI says the robbery spree began on Nov. 21 when the man robbed a BMO Harris Bank branch in Carol Stream, Illinois. It says he used a gun to rob a Fifth Third Bank branch in Cary, Illinois, at the beginning of December.

The agency says the man also robbed a Chase Bank branch in Grayslake, Illinois, on Dec. 26, three days after he attempted to rob a branch in Valparaiso, Indiana.
