SEATTLE — The FBI has released photos and videos of a bank robber known as the AK-47 Bandit, linked to four bank heists in three states, including one last summer in North Bend.

The robber shot and wounded a police officer after the first robbery, in Chino, Calif., on Feb. 29, 2012, the FBI said.

He is believed to be connected to a robbery in Sacramento, Calif., on March 9, 2012, and one in Vacaville, Calif., on March 12, 2012, the FBI said.

The robber may have been driving a late-model, dark gray, four-door Nissan Maxima with chrome trim and tinted windows.

The North Bend hold-up was a take-over robbery at a Chase Bank branch on Mount Si Boulevard on July 6, 2012. A dirty, reddish-orange Jeep Patriot or Liberty was the getaway vehicle, the FBI said.
