The FBI is searching for a serial bank robber.

The agency believes this man is responsible for nine armed bank robberies in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland since the beginning of March 2015.

A $15,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.

The FBI warns the suspect is not only considered armed and dangerous, but also determined.

"A lot of the bank robbers we see are obviously folks suffering from addiction or they're desperate. and you can tell sometimes that their heart is not in it. That is not the case with this individual." said FBI special agent Adam Lee.

Agents say he used black and silver handguns and a sawed-off shotgun during the robberies.
