Federal agents continue to search for the cross-dressing man who robbed a Monrovia bank last week and an FBI spokeswoman said Thursday he's being called the "French Tip Bandit" because of his painted fingernails.
The man claimed to have a suitcase full of anthrax and demanded money at the Chase Bank on Huntington Drive on Dec. 5. He was wearing a women's velour track suit and Ugg boots and had painted fingernails that inspired his nickname, according to Los Angeles-based FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
"The tellers specifically described the polish on his fingernails as candy apple red with a white trim," Eimiller said.
The man has not been linked to any other robberies, Eimiller said.
"Right now, based on the photos and the [modus operandi] we don't have the suspect linked to any other robberies," she said.
