A man who has been robbing Maryland banks with his face half-bandaged recently committed his ninth heist, according to the FBI.
The agency said the suspect robbed two banks on April 1, including a Sandy Spring Bank branch in Burtonsville, Md. and a Capitol One Bank in Elkridge, Md., the latest in a string of heists which began in October.
