TIMES SQUARE — The mugshot of the "Granddad Bandit” was posted on a giant Times Square billboard just weeks after a so-called "Geezer Thief" shot up a Midtown suit store.

The Times Square billboard is part of a nationwide campaign by the FBI to catch a man who has held up banks across the East Coast and the Midwest, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.

The bureau describes the suspect as a 6-feet tall man who weighs around 230 pounds and is between the ages of 50 and 60.

"He just looks like everyone's granddad," supervisory special agent Amanda Moran told the News. "If he was standing behind you in the teller line while you're waiting for teller service, you wouldn't give him a second look."

The suspect is allegedly connected to a least 25 bank heists in 13 states since December 2008.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to Granddad’s arrest.

If you have any information about this man, please contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
