‘Shaky Bandit’ robs 2 South Florida banks Monday, FBI says

FBI officials said they believe two robberies Monday in Palm City and Port St. Lucie were committed by a man known as the "Shaky Bandit."

Officials said the robberies took place at a Chase bank branch at 1201 SE Port St. Lucie Blvd. in Port St. Lucie at 4:54 p.m. and at a Wells Fargo bank at 2801 Southwest High Meadows in Palm City at 5:38 p.m.

The FBI said during both robberies the man walked into the bank, implied he was armed and demanded money from an employee. While there were customers in the banks during the robberies, no injuries were reported.

Investigators said the "Shaky Bandit" received his name because his hands shake during the robberies. They said he is believed to be involved in at least nine other bank robberies in South Florida, including banks in Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale, Boynton Beach, Margate, Wilton Manors and Jupiter.

Anyone with information about the man's identity or the robberies is asked to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Crime Stoppers.
