    Surveillance video captured this image of an alleged serial bank robber who struck again in Mill Creek on Wednesday.

MILL CREEK -- A serial bank robber apparently has struck again in Mill Creek.
Police have dubbed the man the "Tour de Banks Robber," because he's fled on a bicycle from at least seven bank robberies in Snohomish and King Counties since Jan. 30.
Local police agencies are working with the FBI to catch him.
The robbery in Mill Creek was reported about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Whidbey Island Bank, 1504 132nd Street SE, Mill Creek police officer Ian Durkee said.
The man entered the bank with a gun. He demanded cash, put it in a backpack and rode away.
No customers were inside at the time, and no one was injured, Durkee said. Lynnwood police, using a K-9 dog, swept the area. The man was not found.
The man is believed to be in his 20s or 30s and about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-11. He is considered armed and dangerous.
During the robberies, he generally wears a black, full-face ski mask to obscure his identity. He also wears gloves, a dark cap and a dark hoodie-style sweatshirt.
The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Crime Stoppers is offering an additional $6,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and charges.
Anyone with information can call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
