ANAHEIM, Calif. — The FBI is searching for a suspect in a series of bank robberies in the Long Beach area and Orange County in Southern California.

The FBI says the thief successfully robbed three banks this month by brandishing either a gun or a knife and aggressively demanding cash.

Authorities say the suspect also threatened to hurt people if they didn’t cooperate.

The Orange County Register reports investigators released security footage from the banks on Wednesday hoping someone will help them identify the thief.

The suspect is described as a white man between 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 meters) and 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 meters) tall with a slender build, light hair and light eyes.
