Bank bandit uses pedal power

The FBI is looking for a bank robber who makes a slow getaway.

The agency says the bandit hits banks and escapes by bike.

The FBI reports the robber struck again yesterday, sticking-up a bank in southern New Jersey.

The FBI says the same man has robbed three banks in the area since October.

Each time, investigators say he's gotten away on a bicycle.

FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver says it's the first he's ever heard of a robber pedaling away from the scene of a crime.
