The FBI is searching for a brazen bank robbery suspect known as the "AK-47 Bandit."

Investigators released surveillance video from his latest heist in the Seattle area on July 6. The robber wears a full-face ski mask and brandishes an AK-47 assault rifle.

Authorities believe he is the same suspect who shot and wounded a police officer during a holdup at the California Bank and Trust in Chino on Feb. 29. He is also wanted for a March 12 robbery at the Bank of the West in Vacaville, Calif.

A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the suspect's arrest. Anyone with information was asked to call the FBI at (888) 226-8443.
