DENVER (CBS4) – The FBI is looking for the so-called “O2 Bandit” suspected of robbing three banks in Denver in December.

He’s called the “O2 Bandit” because of the medical type mask he wears over his face.

It also looks like he carries an oxygen tank with him.

On Dec. 7 just before noon the FBI says the man walked in to a Chase bank on Colorado Boulevard near 33rd Avenue, gave the bank teller a note with a demand and left.

On Dec. 13 near 37th Avenue and Quebec Street a man with the same disguise robbed a Western Credit Union.

Surveillance cameras captured pictures of the man as he walked inside.

On Dec. 30, it appeared the same man with the same disguise robbed a Partner Credit Union near 40th Avenue and Quebec Street around 3:45 p.m.

The FBI says it’s unclear if the oxygen tank the “O2 Bandit” carries with him is real but their search for him is ongoing.

There is a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Authorities are asking anyone who recognizes him to contact police.
