PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The FBI is offering a reward up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of an Oregon bank robbery suspect dubbed the “Froggy Robber” by investigators.

The suspect is wanted in connection with at least four bank robberies since October.

A Columbia Bank in Canby was hit Oct. 19, followed by Albina Community Bank in northeast Portland on Nov. 27, a Wells Fargo Bank in Wilsonville on Dec. 27 and another Wells Fargo Bank on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway on Jan. 11.

The suspect was nicknamed the “Froggy Robber” because in each of the four bank robberies, he jumped over the teller counter to get to the money.

The suspect also used a knife to threaten bank employees in each case.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, between 20 years old to mid-30s, 5 feet 3 inches tall to 5 feet 7 inches tall and around 150 pounds.

The FBI released details about each bank robbery Thursday.
