The JV Bandit.
The Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force, the nicknaming kings of local law enforcement, have another scofflaw on their radar: the JV Bandit, who earned his handle for wearing a letter jacket on one of his jobs.

Go team!

Will he be wrapped up as quickly as the Formally Known as the Perennial Bandit Bandit? Maybe if you recognize him from the slew of photos that appear with the FBI release below:
