FBI searching for suspect in string of bank robberies

- The FBI needs your help to find a man suspected of robbing multiple banks around Georgia and South Carolina.

Frank Douglas, 58, has been charged with robbing a bank in North Augusta, South Carolina, on Nov. 27. He had been released from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons on Sept. 29.

He's also a suspect in the robbery of a BB&T in Conyers, Ga. on Nov. 30, and a Bank of America in Athens on Dec. 5.

In both of those cases, police say Douglas passed a note to a bank teller, indicated that he had a gun, and threatened to shoot employees if his demands were not met. In each case, authorities say he left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

In a statement, Special Agent in Charge David J. LeValley said that Douglas is known to stay at motels and budget hotels under aliases, as well as homeless shelters.

He is considered to be armed and dangerous.
