Suspect in 'snowboarder bandit' bank robberies arrested
The bandit earned his nickname because he wore knit caps and sweaters and struck agents as having the general look of a snowboarder.
Michael B. Franks, 29, of Riverside is expected to remain in custody over the weekend and be charged next week, according to an FBI news release.
The joint investigation leading to Franks’ arrest involved law enforcement agencies in Orange, Riverside and Ventura counties.
No further details were available late Friday.
