Criminals don't always get nicknames. Some do if they commit the same crime too many times, but for the most part, it's just their name associated with their mugshot.

Then there's bank robbers, who for whatever reason, always seem to be given a nickname by the FBI. Part of it is they don't always get caught right away, so they keep repeating until they do...and they always use the same method.

Houston has recently been dealing with a bank robber themselves, and they still haven't been able to catch the person doing it. They have a distinct way of robbing the banks they hit, and that's with sticky notes. Therefore, the FBI has dubbed this person the "Sticky Note Bandit".

So it got me thinking. What are some of the best nicknames that have been handed down by the FBI to bank robbers? I found a few that I flat out belly laughed at, so I thought I'd share some of these with you.

SHOEBOX SUSPECT

So this one seems like low hanging fruit, but I still thought it was kind of funny. The suspect entered the bank, gave the teller a black shoebox and demanded the teller fill up the box with money. The teller did exactly that, and the suspect left the bank with an unidentified amount of cash.

BANDIT SHARK

Ok, this was the first one I laughed out loud at. I didn't think the name was overly clever...until I looked at the picture. Yes, that is a grown man wearing a hoodie with a shark emblazoned on the side of the hood. I mean, my kids have worn these types of hoodies when they were little kids, but not since they were, well, little kids.

MUMMY MARAUDER

Look, if you're going to rob a bank, you want to make sure that not only are you completely covered up, but you don't want to leave any fingerprints to make it easy for law enforcement to find you. This particular robber made very sure of that, wrapping themselves up in a ton of gauze that gave off the appearance of them being a mummy. I mean, it does make it hard to identify them.

DAPPER DESPERADO

I can say they absolutely nailed it with this nickname. This man rolled into the bank looking like a normal businessman who just wrapped up a long day of work. Shirt unbuttoned a bit, suit jacket open. You would never expect this man is about to flash a gun at you and demand you give him some money. Looking high-fashion is a sure way to come off as unassuming, however he made it way too easy to identify him.

MR. MANNERS OF MONTROSE

We have officially descended upon my favorite nickname of them all. You wouldn't imagine that someone coming in to rob a bank is a model citizen or expect them to have any manners whatsoever. This guy though has to be the nicest bank robber on the planet. After being given an undisclosed amount of cash, he thanked numerous bank employees and told them to have a nice day before fleeing on foot from the bank. I guess being kind is possible, even when you're taking what isn't yours.
