Lloyd Rhodes: Sneaky serial robbery suspect wanted in several states identified as ‘Face Tape Bandit’ in Seattle case
WANTED IN SEATTLE -- Seattle Police and the FBI are working with a task force out of Denver to catch a serial armed robbery suspect that we dubbed ‘The Face Tape Bandit’ last September. Surveillance video shows the suspect with black tape on his face and hat, who detectives have now identified as Lloyd Eugene Rhodes. Police say he threatened to shoot an employee at a movie theater during an armed robbery in the University District. He was there waiting and disguised as an employee. It’s the same MO police say he has used in 13 other robberies: Entering a business before it closes, hiding and then waiting until employees arrive the next day.
