A new image of the so-called "Ho Hum Bandit" taken at a Laguna Beach bank on Saturday, July 24. FBI agents believe the same man is responsible for 12 bank robberies throughout Southern California.
Dubbed the "Ho-Hum Bandit" for the unassuming manner with which he holds up banks, the unknown suspect may have robbed a Chase Bank just after noon in Edgewater, Colo., investigators said.
The man is described as white with brown hair, between the ages of 25 and 35, and about 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-10. He has an average build and weighs about 160 to 170 pounds.
His string of burglaries began on Feb. 27, 2010, when he robbed a San Diego National Bank in Point Loma, the FBI said. In July, he robbed a bank in Laguna Beach, and Southern California banks pooled together $15,000 for his capture.
According to the FBI website, the suspect typically approaches a bank teller and demands cash, either by note or orally. He has shown a handgun before and, after receiving the money, walks out of the bank.
