BULLETIN: FBI, local law seeking bandit

March 27, 2009

The Sleeves Bandit has a history in this county.

Federal authorities and investigators from San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay police departments are seeking a man dubbed the “Sleeves Bandit” who is suspected of robbing a long list of at least 15 California banks, including several in this county.

He’s described by the FBI as a white male, early to mid 50s, short white or gray hair, 5’10” – 6′ tall, medium build and weighing 180 to 200 pounds. He has assaulted victims during some of his “takeover-style” robberies.

A reward is offered. In Los Angeles, the FBI may be reached 24 hours a day by calling 1 888 CANT HIDE (or 888 226-8443).
