The FBI says a $25,000 reward is being offered for information about a serial bank robber dubbed the "Bayou Bandit," who officials say may have hit 11 banks in five states, including three in Oklahoma.

Agents said Friday the robber is described as a white male who is 40 to 50 years old with an average build and is between 5-feet 10-inches and 6 feet tall.

The FBI says the robber typically enters the bank and presents a note to a teller demanding money. He has worn a baseball hat, dark sunglasses and a dark-colored shirt.

Besides Oklahoma, the bandit has hit four banks in Louisiana, one in Arkansas, two in New Mexico and one in Mississippi.

The Oklahoma Bankers Association is putting up $5,000 of the reward being offered.
