HONOLULU (KHNL) - Honolulu Police used a helicopter, dogs and a specialized services officer to search for a suspect bank robbery in Pearl City Tuesday.

Police said the suspect was identified as a man who used disguises to rob nine banks during the last twelve months.

"He should be considered armed and dangerous because in the commission of his robberies, he did brandish a handgun," said Capt. Frank Fujii, Honolulu Police spokesman.

Police identified the suspect as 40-year-old Michael Rosario, who was described as being 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds.

The most recent robbery Rosario is suspected of committing took place on Sept. 22 at the Keeaumoku Street branch of Central Pacific Bank. Police said rosario may be connected to more robberies.

"He's been positively identified in nine bank robberies and we're still investigating a few others," Fujii said.

A federal warrant for Rosario's arrest was issued on Monday. Honolulu police hope all the publicity surrounding this case will lead to his capture.

"Give yourself up, your picture is all over the place now," Fujii said. "The community is aware of who you are and sooner or later, we're going to get you."
