Turn in AK-47 Bandit and cash in

January 17, 2013

ak47banditThe FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for a tip that leads to the conviction of the AK-47 Bandit.

A man carrying a rifle similar to an Ak-47 robbed a bank in Chino in February and shot a police officer, seriously wounding him. The man parlayed his getaway by successfully robbing banks in Vacaville, California, North Bend, Washington and Rexburg, Idaho, all in 2012. He is also suspected of attempting a bank robbery in Sacramento.

Witnesses last saw the AK-47 Bandit on Nov. 7 in Rexburg after he robbed the East Idaho Credit Union. The suspect fled south on South Yellowstone Highway in a dark blue sedan with tinted windows and a red and blue license plate.

He is believed to have a loud, deep voice with no obvious accent. The robber used a ski mask to cover his face.

The FBI is teaming with two banks robbed by the bandit and the city of Chino to offer the $100,000 reward, $50,000 of the reward money comes from the FBI. Both the East Idaho Credit Union and the city of Chino are offering $20,000, and the California Bank & Trust in Chino is offering $10,000.

Chino police, along with the FBI, encourage anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the AK-47 Bandit to call 1-855-9BANDIT.

Law enforcement does not recommend attempting to apprehend the suspect. The Ak-47 Bandit is considered heavily armed and dangerous.

    As Willie Sutton was once asked, “Why do you rob banks?”

    …only to reply, “Because that’s where the money is.”

    I’ve been to Rexburg, Idaho. A small, sleepy town where everyone watches you. Would be hard to get away without being watched by half the town.

    That poor man! Imagine a evil gun making him rob those banks! It’s only a matter of time until the gun kills someone and the man gets blamed. Why, he could go to jail for months! For something that gun did!

      HEY! If we had banned all scary-looking guns, this man would NEVER have robbed a bank. Ever!

        If we banned banks, we wouldn’t have to worry about them getting robbed! Dirty, nasty banks!

    ATF’s Fast and Furious scandal

    A federal operation dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

    And we complain about a couple of banks being robbed up here (aren’t banks themselves the biggest robbers in the history of the world?).

      OK, OK… they tried to blame the Bush admin for this one, it didn’t pass muster (even by left-wing outlets), so let’s just leave that buried next to Bengazi, ok? Thanks… moving on…

    Looks to me that this CRIMINAL didn’t read up on the gun laws in California. An ak47 is illegal to have unless it was purchased before the assault weapons ban in the state and then it had to be registered with the the state department of justice, also looks to me that the Clip holds more than 10 rounds which is another law violation. Just goes to show you HOW WELL some gun laws work.
    If he brought it in from another state maybe california should put up sign’s at the borders in all language’s known to man……… ALL Criminal’s leave your guns here at the border and you can pick them up when you leave !!!!
    AAAAHHHH but wait…. Criminals don’t obey laws, Maybe that is why they are called CRIMINALS !!!
    And the answer to this problem is to dissarm all law abiding gun owners so the criminal can have their way with you and the goverment TOO !
