CHICAGO (AP) - The FBI is seeking information leading to the arrest of a bank robber called the Midday Bandit and has increased a reward to $25,000.

The increased reward was announced Thursday by Michael J. Anderson, special agent-in-charge of the FBI’s Chicago office.

The Midday Bandit is suspected of carrying out 12 bank robberies in Chicago, Oak Lawn, Aurora and Oak Park, the most recent in August. The robberies occurred between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and date back to 2014.

Witnesses have described the suspect as in his late 30s, about 5-feet-11 and weighing 160 to 175 pounds. He has worn glasses and hats during the robberies.

The Chicago Crime Commission is adding $5,000 to raise the reward to $25,000. Information should be reported to local police or the Chicago FBI.
