CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — In a further attempt to identify and apprehend an armed bank robbery suspect, nicknamed the “Dapper Dan Bandit,” the FBI is now offering a reward of up to $5,000.
The reward is being offered by FBI Richmond’s Central Virginia Violent Crimes Task Force in exchange for additional information that leads to the identification and arrest of the suspect.
The suspect is wanted for an armed bank robbery that occurred around 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, at the First Community Bank located at 11400 Midlothian Turnpike.

He was wearing a gray flat cap, a light-colored dress shirt, a dark blue blazer, khaki pants, white socks and brown square-toed dress shoes. His face was covered with sunglasses, a white medical-style mask and black “mechanics” gloves with white lettering.
The suspect should be considered “armed and dangerous,” according to the FBI.
