PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
The man dubbed the "Where's Waldo Bandit" for a bank robbery in 2010 is now wanted by police again after a Portland bank was robbed Monday.
Ryan Homsley, 32, was released from federal prison last Tuesday and police believe he robbed a bank six days later. He is wanted on a federal probation violation warrant.
Police identified Homsley as the suspect in a bank robbery at U.S. Bank, 410 S.W. Harrison St., at 1:30 p.m. Monday. Investigators said a man handed a bank employee a note demanding money. He got away with cash and ran toward Portland State University.
Homsley was previously arrested in September 2010 for a bank robbery at Key Bank in Tualatin. In that case, investigators said he claimed to have a bomb and left a small box and a backpack behind as he left the scene. Neither item contained explosives.
He was dubbed the "Where's Waldo Bandit," due to his glasses and shirt resembling the children's book character.
He was arrested at a Eugene hospital Sept. 24, 2010, three days after the bank robbery. Police said he checked in two days after the crime.
Homsley pleaded guilty to bank robbery charges in March 2012. He was sentenced to 40 months in prison, but was granted early release with three years post-prison supervision.
Homsley is a white man, 5'9" tall and 156 pounds with dark-colored hair that is parted on one side. He wears glasses and had slight facial hair growth. He was wearing a dark-colored sports coat over a white shirt with dark-colored pants.
If you see Homsley, do not approach him. Instead, call 911.
Anyone with non-emergency information about Homsely should contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at 503-823-1080 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact the Portland office of the FBI at 503-224-4181.
