PORTLAND — The Portland Police Bureau has released surveillance photos to help the public identify a bank robber nicknamed "The Pug Bandit."

Investigators say the suspect claimed to have a bomb when robbing a pair of southeast Portland banks in September 2011. They believe the same man is responsible for a bank robbery last month, also in southeast Portland.

Police declined to say how much money was stolen.
