CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The FBI is asking the public’s help in catching a so-called “bad wig bandit” who’s been robbing banks in North Carolina.

The FBI said in a statement on Thursday that the suspect wore a different wig during each heist in the Charlotte area.

One wig was blonde. Another was black. The third was red.

The FBI said he robbed a BB&T in Huntersville on Dec. 13.

He then robbed two banks on Jan. 7.

The first was a New Horizon Bank in Belmont.

The second was a Wells Fargo in Gastonia.
