Michael John Husten is a TCF bank robber

Minneapolis police say 60-year-old Michael John Husten is a TCF Bank robber.

Unfortunately, Husten is not that TCF robber. Since January, TCF Bank has been hit with robberies four times--three within a single week. Husten was charged Friday with robbing a Minneapolis TCF bank in November. He's robbed other banks, but his last heist was in 1999.

On November 30, Husten walked into the TCF bank at 1602 New Brighton Blvd in Minneapolis and handed the teller a note.

"This is a robbery. Give me all your cash. I have a gun," the note read.

The bank teller obeyed and Husten walked out with the dough.

It wasn't too hard for police to identify Husten--his face was captured on the surveillance camera, and witnesses identified him in a line-up. By then, Husten was already locked up at the Minnesota State Correctional Facility in Faribault, on probation related to robbing a KFC in 2008.

But police are still looking for the man who robbed four TCF banks this year: in West St. Paul on January 3, in St. Paul on February 28, and in St. Anthony on March 1, and in Fridley on March 3. The FBI describe the thief as an Asian male, about 5'7" tall with a slight build. During the robberies he wore light colored pants or jeans, a black zippered and hooded jacket, black shirt, a black mask, and black gloves.

Here's a shot of the still-missing TCF thief from one of the banks' surveillance cameras:
