SEATTLE -- The Seattle Safe Streets Task Force is looking for a man who's as passionate about showing support for his favorite sports teams as he is for robbing banks, according to the FBI.

According to the FBI, the man it's dubbed the "Rabid Fan Bandit" could be behind at least five bank robberies around the state this month, all while wearing hats repping different teams, including the Seattle Seahawks, Alabama Crimson Tide, Miami Heat and Boston Red Sox.

The FBI believes the man is responsible for the March 3 robbery of a Chase Bank in Auburn, March 10 robbery of a Banner Bank in Spokane, March 13 robbery of a Chase Bank in Covington, March 19 robbery of a Chase Bank in Renton and March 24 robbery of a Wells Fargo in Lakewood.

The Rabid Fan Bandit is also possibly behind the armed robbery of a Kent Subway Feb. 2 and the robbery of the Coach Factory Outlets Feb. 27 in Auburn.

The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the FBI.
