'Snowboarder bandit' strikes O.C. credit union, police say
Police say the so-called "snowboarder bandit" struck again, but he wore a new outfit this time.
The robber, who normally wears a beanie and sunglasses as he robs banks, instead wore a motorcycle helmet and black jacket as he stole money Monday from the Schools First Credit Union on East Santa Ana Canyon Road, KTLA-TV reported.
Investigators think the robber -- believed to be about 25 years old -- is responsible for nine robberies in Orange County since Dec. 20. He typically gives the teller a note implying he has a weapon and then demands cash.
