Phoenix's Latest Bank-Robbing Bozo Dubbed "Bad Teeth Bandit" by Authorities
The man now-dubbed by the Phoenix Police Department as the "Bad Teeth Bandit" has struck again, this time hitting a Wells Fargo on Tatum Boulevard in Phoenix not far from a different Wells Fargo he robbed a few weeks ago.
The suspect, described as white, about 35 years old, 5-foot-8, with a thin build and "messed-up" teeth, has now hit six Phoenix banks, four of which were Wells Fargo branches.
Phoenix Police Sergeant Steve Martos tells New Times he isn't entirely sure of the bandit's M.O. in yesterday's robbery.

The suspect took the cash and was on his way -- in a fairly recognizable car that witnesses were able to identify.
The suspect's getaway car is described as a mid-'90s, white Ford Mustang with a beige, convertible top. There may be a for-sale sign in one of its windows.
Silent Witness is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to this guy's capture, so if you have any information about the robbery, or the suspect, call the Phoenix Police Department.
