A man is suspected of committing seven Salt Lake City-area bank robberies over the holidays, and the FBI is asking the public to help catch him.

The FBI’s Salt Lake City division put out a wanted poster Friday, detailing information about a man the feds are calling “The Holiday Bandit,” who they say robbed six banks and a credit union around Salt Lake City between Nov. 20 and Dec. 28.

The robber is described as being white or Hispanic, between 5’4’’ and 5’8’’ in height. In the robberies, he has worn a baseball cap or beanie, a tan or black jacket, and sometimes a hooded jacket. In one robbery, he wore a wig and fake mustache.
