"Overtimetime Bandit" Strikes Again. By "Again," We Mean he Hit the Same Bank Twice

The "Overtime Bandit" is at it again -- for the second time in three months he's robbed the same Mesa bank.

The bandit, dubbed the "Overtime Bandit" because he tends to strike on weekends or at the end of the work day, robbed the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union at 2355 S. Alma School Road in Mesa yesterday -- the same bank he's suspected of robbing back in May.

He's believed to have robbed two Chandler banks, too; the Chase Bank at 1080 W. Chandler Boulevard, and the U.S. Bank at 1159 West Chandler Boulevard.

His M.O. is fairly run-of-the-mill as far as Valley bank robberies go -- the guy walks into a bank, gives the teller a note demanding money, gets the cash, and leaves.

Authorities say an accomplice often helps the bandit flee the scene of each robbery.

The suspect is described as a black male, between 6-foot-1 and 6-foot-4, 25-30 years old, and he wears a long, black wig during each heist.

Desert Schools Federal Credit Union is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the conviction of the "Overtime Bandit."

Authorities ask anyone with information to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or to the FBI at 602-279-5511.
