L.A. bank robber wears Richard Nixon mask
The FBI is searching for a man who wore a mask of Richard Nixon when he robbed two banks in Encino.
According to the FBI, the so-called Ex-President Bandit hit a Santa Barbara Bank & Trust on Dec. 2 and a branch of U.S. Bank on Nov. 25.
The robber may be taking a page from the movie "Point Break," in which bank robbers wore masks of Nixon, Ronald Reagan and other former presidents to rob banks in the Los Angeles area.
The suspect was described as calm, wearing dark clothes and brandishing a handgun. No one was hurt in either of the robberies.
