PORTLAND – Cops in Portland are not giving up on their search for a fugitive bank robber dubbed the “Short Stack Bandit.”

Morgan Brice Williams, 25, is wanted in connection with a string of Portland metro area bank robberies dating back to Oct. 2013, according to Pete Simpson with Portland police.

After months without making an arrest in the case, police again asked for the public’s help Friday in tracking down the serial robber who held up 11 banks in recent months. Crime Stoppers offered its standard $1,000 reward for information that leads to the suspect’s arrest.

Tipsters that help nab the “Short Stack Bandit” will be in for a more cash than usual because the Oregon Financial Institutions Security Taskforce also offered up $5,000 for information leading to Williams’ arrest.

Police said anyone who spots Williams should hang back and call 911. He was described as a white or Hispanic man, 5-foot-9, 170 lbs, with short brown hair and hazel eyes.
