FBI Releases Security Photo Of "Balding Bandit"; Misnomer?
The FBI released a photo, which you can see at right, of a guy they say has robbed three banks in La Mirada since May. They're calling him the "Balding Bandit," which seems like a misnomer.
Authorities say he held up a Banco Popular Tuesday, after robbing Chase branches on May 14 and July 23. Look closely at the picture. This seems like a lame nickname, as he's really got pretty good hair, especially for a guy they also describe as being in his 50s.
In the alleged robberies, he passed a note to a teller, claimed to have a weapon and left with cash. Not exactly a pro.
If you have information, call the FBI at 888-CANT-HIDE; the sheriff's Norwalk Station at 562-863-8711; or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
