LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FBI says a bank robber dubbed the "make it quick bandit" has been linked to another holdup in Southern California.
Investigators say the unidentified man is suspected in a robbery Friday at a U.S. Bank located inside a Vons supermarket in Gardena. It's the third heist linked to the suspect at the same bank branch.
The FBI says the bandit is suspected in nine grocery-store bank robberies since 2009. His modus operandi is to wander the aisles of the grocery store for a while before holding up the bank teller.
The robber advises the teller that people are waiting for him outside the store.
The suspect's previous heist was a bank in Torrance, his second this year.
He is also suspected of five holdups last year and one in 2009.
