TYLER, TX (KLTV)- In March 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation along with local police in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas, launched a nationwide search for the man authorities have dubbed the "Loan Ranger Bandit". Now, the FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the robber.
