UPDATED: FBI, law enforcement asking for help to capture 'Ball Cap Bandit'

By Paris Jackson

The local FBI and several Alabama law enforcement agencies are seeking the public's help to capture an alleged serial bank robber. 

Authorities are calling Cedrick Lamond Hicks, 32, the "Ball Cap Bandit," because he wears baseball caps during bank robberies. 

The FBI spokesperson, Paul Daymond, says Hicks has targeted several Alabama banks in Cullman, Guntersville and Decatur and one in Tennessee.

"We never know where he is going to strike next or if he'll strike next, but the thing about it is, we want folks to aware of who he is," Daymond said.

Monday, Hicks allegedly held up a Peoples Trust bank in Hamilton, Alabama.

Since August, the FBI has been on Hicks trail, the time he's believed to have started his crime spree in the state.

Daymond says Hicks gives a note to a bank teller saying he's armed and demands money. He then flees on foot.

Authorities believe he could be dangerous and need help in location him.

We haven't got the right piece of information yet. We feel like people out there have some information. People know who he is, where he is and we'd like for them to call us," Daymond said.
