A $10,000 reward has been offered for a man federal officials say has robbed several banks dating back to 2009, including banks in College Station, Round Rock and Temple.

The man has so far is believed to have hit a total of 10 banks in Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi, according to the FBI.

During the heists, the man hands workers notes stating he wants cash. The money must only be in 20-, 50- and 100-dollar bills. No injuries have been reported in the robberies.

The man is described as being in his early 30s. He is between about 5 feet 7 inches tall and 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds. He has short, light-brown hair and wears eyeglasses. He has a small mole or mark on his forehead just above his right eye.

The man wears a variety of clothes during the robberies, including athletic wear, jeans and business attire. The FBI has dubbed him the "Loan Ranger Bandit" because he wears a Texas Rangers baseball cap while robbing banks where loans are offered.

The man may drive a maroon Chevrolet S-10 pickup with a thin white pinstripe around the bed.

FBI officials said the suspect is considered armed and dangerous. The reward is offered for information that leads to the man's identification, arrest and conviction.
