Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police received information from the FBI that the “Move Quick Bandit”, a serial bank robber, is responsible for the November 12, 2015 robbery of Mt. Juliet’s FirstBank. The “Move Quick Bandit” is responsible for 11 bank robberies between Tennessee and Kentucky, beginning in July of 2015, which includes the Mt. Juliet FirstBank. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered by the FBI for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for these crimes.
During the FirstBank robbery on Thursday, November 12, officers rushed to the bank, located at 4110 N. Mt. Juliet Road, after receiving a 911 call from an employee about a robbery around 4:50 p.m. Further investigation revealed, the “Move Quick Bandit” entered the bank and walked up to the front counter. He slid a note over to a bank employee, which had a written message demanding cash. After retrieving an undisclosed amount of cash, the bandit ran out of the bank, but his whereabouts after that is unknown. Investigators with Mt. Juliet’s Criminal Investigative Division and Federal Bureau of Investigation responded to the scene to conduct a thorough investigation. Time was spent dusting for fingerprints and canvassing the area in hopes of gathering evidence to lead them to more information about the bandit.
The “Move Quick Bandit” is described as a black male with a medium complexion. He is around 5’8″ to 5’10” tall, has a medium build, and likely in his 30’s of 40’s years of age. He was also described as being neatly dressed and having pits and/or scars on his cheeks.
