$10,000 reward offered for information about 'Ho-Hum Bandit' in San Diego

HoHum Bandit
A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the San Diego bank robber so nonchalant in his approach and nondescript in his appearance that the FBI has dubbed him the "Ho-Hum Bandit."

The bandit has hit at least five banks, including one Thursday in La Jolla. He is described as a white male in his mid- to late 20s, approximately 5-foot-7, 150 pounds, cleanshaven, with thick glasses.

In two of the robberies he wore a Dale Earnhardt Jr. cap with a red 88 on the front, the FBI said. In each robbery he told tellers he had a gun.

Information can be given to San Diego County Crime Stoppers (888) 580-8477.
