FBI is trying to catch a ‘bad wig bandit’ in North Carolina

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (AP) — The FBI is asking the public’s help in catching a so-called ‘bad wig bandit’ who’s been robbing banks in North Carolina.

The FBI said in a statement last Thursday that the suspect wore a different wig during each heist in the Charlotte area.

One wig was blonde. Another was black. The third was red.

The FBI said he robbed a BB&T in Huntersville on December 13 last year. He then robbed two banks on January 7. The first was a New Horizon Bank in Belmont. The second was a Wells Fargo in Gastonia.
