'Seasoned Bandit' arrested, FBI says

Posted: Updated:

The FBI has arrested a man who investigators say robbed at least four Central Coast banks and a total of 10 banks.

The Los Angeles office of the FBI said Tuesday evening that a man they called the "Seasoned Bandit" was arrested and charged Tuesday in federal court. His name was not immediately released.

Federal agents say they have connected the bandit with 10 robberies and a tip helped lead to his arrest.

The "Seasoned Bandit" was wanted in connection with the September 6 robbery of the CoastHills Credit Union on Bradley Road in Santa Maria, the July 7 robbery of a Golden 1 Credit Union in Goleta, and two robberies in April and May in Carpinteria.
