The FBI is looking for a man who robbed the same bank twice, and they are seeking information that can help identify the suspect and lead to an arrest.

Federal agents said a man dressed as a construction worker walked into the Sovereign Bank at 1816 Emmorton Road in Bel Air, Md., on Dec. 17, 2012.

The robber displayed a black "bullpup" style pistol grip, short-barreled shotgun from under his jacket and ordered the tellers to open the cash drawers. The robber demanded money from the bank employees, took the cash and fled.

The culprit was described as a white male, 6-foot-2, with a medium build and about 40 to 55 years old. He wore a red hard hat, light-blue surgical mask, plaid flannel jacket, blue jeans and brown work boots.

Less than three weeks later, on Jan. 4, the robber returned to the same bank, wearing similar attire but without the hard hat.

He pulled out the shotgun, robbed the bank and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, FBI officials said. Anyone with information should contact the Baltimore Division of the FBI at 410-265-8080 or the local FBI office. Tips can also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov.
