FBI Names 'Holiday Bandit' Bank Robber
The FBI has identified the guy who stuck up three banks in December in Brooklyn and Queens as Marat G. Mikhaylich. A big dude, he's 6-3 to 6-5, 210 pounds and 35 years old. Last seen, he was wearing a black hat (naturally), black ear muffs, dark sunglasses, a black winter jacket, and dark blue jeans. His handgun is also black, the FBI says.
These are the bank jobs he's sought for:
* Sovereign Bank located at 24-29 Jackson Avenue, Queens, New York on Thursday, December 30, 2010
* Ridgewood Savings Bank located at 8522 Third Avenue, Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, December 23, 2010
* Sovereign Bank located at 37-10 Broadway, Astoria, New York on Thursday, December 9, 2010
"This is a clear picture and anyone can speak up if they have seen this individual," says Special Agent Richard Kolko. "Mikhaylich's alleged behavior was reckless and incredibly dangerous. Anytime anyone enters a bank with their finger on the trigger, the worst can happen."
Squeal on this suspect and you can get a cash reward if it leads to an arrest. Call the FBI at 212-384-1000.
