In near desperation, the FBI has posted the suspects image on electronic billboards throughout the South. What really makes the FBI look bad is that the suspect has made no effort to disguise his identity. He doesn't use a mask or any gimmick. FBI agent Kevin Keithley describes the suspect's modus operanda as "uncommon." One has to ponder are stereotypes hindering the investigation? Do all Caucasian, close-cropped hair with goatee redneck bandits look alike?
The bandits description is: white, about 25 years old, 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 11, 170 to 175 pounds. He has short, reddish-brown hair and a goatee. He is also rumored to drive a pickup truck while listening to country music.
If any one can help the FBI out on this one, please call the FBI at 423-282-8090.
