Bad Wig Bandit strikes Charlotte area banks.

A serial bank robber is striking the Charlotte area and not only should you call the police if you see him, but possibly the fashion police!

In two of robberies, the man tried unsuccessfully to dress like a female. In a third case, nobody is sure what he was trying to pull off, though the look has been likened to Wookie from “Star Wars.”

The “Bad Wig Bandit,” as the FBI is calling him, has hit three banks in three weeks and “in each robbery, the suspect wore a different wig,” the agency said in a news release.

So far he has struck banks in Huntersville, Gastonia and Belmont. If you see anyone that looks like this guy, be sure to call 911 or your local FBI office.
