All of the heists have occurred in Carson, Torrance, Inglewood, San Pedro and Gardena -- and some banks he has hit more than once.

Officials say the most recent heist was in San Pedro on May 24th.

In every robbery, the suspect has hit US Bank branches located inside grocery stores.

He wanders the aisles before saying to tellers that "others" were waiting outside. In the robberies he hands a note saying to "Make it quick" hence the moniker.

The FBI says he should be considered armed and dangerous.
