$40K offered for info on 'Sundown Bandits'

MIAMI --

The FBI has announced a reward for information leading to two men who robbed six South Florida banks in the last year.

Two men whom police call the "Sundown Bandits" are believed to have committed robberies at six banks in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties since December.

The FBI said each robber usually has a gun when they enter a bank. The men steal money from the bank tellers' drawers and then clean out the vault, according to investigators.

The robbers are described as black men between 25 and 30 years old. They usually wear baseball caps during their crimes, the FBI said.

The crimes took place on Dec. 24 at a Fifth Third Bank in Pembroke Pines; March 4 at a City County Credit Union in Pembroke Pines; April 23 at a City County Credit Union in Miramar; May 22 at a People's Credit Union in Hialeah; Aug. 27 at a Coconut Grove Bank in South Miami; and Sept. 9 at a Wachovia Bank in Boca Raton.

A reward of $40,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrests of the two robbers, who are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 305-944-9101.
