PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The FBI says the so-called "Bad Hair Bandit," sought in connection with as many as 18 bank robberies or attempted robberies in Washington, is now suspected in a robbery in the Portland suburb of Lake Oswego.

Portland FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele says the woman approached a teller Friday afternoon in a Key Bank branch, indicated she had a weapon and demanded money. She walked out with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Steele says the woman wore a distinctive short dark wig and fits the description of other heists by the "Bad Hair Bandit."

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to conviction of the robber.
