The FBI on Wednesday released bank surveillance photos of a man who robbed banks in Hacienda Heights and Santa Ana.
Officials dubbed him the “No Bands Bandit.”
“In both robberies, he demanded cash without bands,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. “He specifically said he didn’t want cash with bands on it.”
The bandit robbed the U.S. Bank at 2040 S Hacienda Blvd. in Hacienda Heights on Tuesday. He also hit the U.S. Bank at 2740 N Grand Ave. in Santa Ana on Aug. 4.
Eimiller said no one was injured during the robberies.
In Tuesday’s robbery, the bandit entered the Hacienda Heights bank about 10:30 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money.
Eimiller said no weapon was seen.
But in the Santa Ana robbery, she said a teller saw the suspect displaying a weapon under his clothing.
The suspect was described as a Latino or white man, 45 to 55, between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing between 170 to 180 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 1-888 CANT HIDE (1-888 226-8443).
