A $1,000 reward is being offered to help police catch a bank robber who has been dubbed the "Short Stack Bandit."
A man robbed the Umpqua Bank at 1448 N.E. Weidler St. at 10:17 a.m. Wednesday. Police said he had a note demanding money and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Several officers searched the area, but did not locate anyone matching his description.
The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man with light-colored skin in his early 20s. He is 5'8" tall with a medium build and light facial hair. He was wearing a dark-colored baseball cap, dark jacket with a hood, a red shirt and dark-colored pants.
A suspect with a similar description also robbed the Wells Fargo Bank and Albina Community Bank about two miles apart on Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard Tuesday.
Robbery detectives have nicknamed the suspect the "Short Stack Bandit" and released surveillance images to try and help track him down.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. Call 503-823-HELP or go to www.crimestoppersoforegon.com.
