The FBI released several composite sketches Monday of the man who is suspected of holding up 10 Southern California banks, including a Wells Fargo last week in Irvine.

Known as the "Snowboarder Bandit" due to his affinity for wearing ski clothes and a knit cap, he has also sported a motorcycle helmet during one trip to a Citibank in March, says the FBI.

Witnessed have described him as a tall man, about 6' 2", and between 25 and 32 years old.

Two banks are each offering a $5,000 reward for his arrest and conviction, meaning $10,000 could go to someone who turns in one of Orange County's most-wanted bandits.

The FBI can be reached at their Santa Ana office at (714) 542-8825 for people who may know of his identity or location.
