The FBI has set a $10,000 reward for anyone who has information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for these robberies that spread across three states - Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

Here's the video of his robbery of LeTourneau Federal Credit Union in Longview, TX on August 31 of 2016.
