Authorities said he approached the same bank at a different location in his most recent heist, approached the teller and handed a note demanding cash while brandishing a gun.

In addition to sunglasses, the bandit wore a black Chicago White Sox baseball cap as well as a black gaiter-style mask, a black Magellan brand long-sleeved shirt, dark pants, and black and white shoes, authorities said.
