Santa Barbara , Calif. - Bank robbers apparently don't have an advocacy group protesting such insulting law enforcement monickers as the "Overweight Bandit,""Big Nose Bandit" and "Oldtimer Bandit."
The latest is the so-called "Enormous Ears Bandit," who is targeting banks as far away as San Diego and has apparently struck the Central Coast area for a third time.
The bandit got away with about $3,000 from a Bank of America branch in Montecito on Wednesday morning. After looking at surveillance video, investigators said it was the work of the crook the FBI dubbed "The Enormous Ears Bandit." He's wanted for six other robberies.
"He almost exclusively hits in the mornings and uses the same M.O. And (besides big ears) he likes the dark sunglasses and lowered cap," police Lt. Paul McCaffrey said.
Wednesday's robber handed a demand note to a teller and ordered the cash to be in $50s and $100s, police said. No weapon was seen.
