LA CRESCENTA — A man who robbed a La Crescenta bank branch last week is believed to be the same one who robbed the same bank in 2007, officials said Thursday.
The “Green Tattoo Bandit,” who earned his nickname because of a green tattoo on his neck, robbed a Bank of America branch, 3141 Foothill Boulevard, on Sept. 9, sheriff’s officials said.
He entered the bank about 1 p.m. and handed a teller a threatening note, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Blume said shortly after the incident.
He was last seen leaving the area in a small, white, older-model sedan, officials added.
Authorities said Thursday that the “Green Tattoo Bandit” is also believed to have robbed the same bank on Nov. 28 of 2007.
The bandit is described as a Latino man in his 30s with a mustache and goatee, in addition to his green neck tattoo.
