A “Bad Hatter Bandit” is hitting banks in the Sacramento area.
The FBI is asking for help tracking down a man who has robbed at least two Chase Banks in the last few months. He robbed one of the banks twice.
The “Bad Hatter Bandit” has changed his clothing, but according to officials he always wears a black hat. He passes a note or verbally demands for cash, each time indicating he is armed. However, a weapon has never been seen.
The first robbery was at the end of November at the bank along Del Paso Road south of I-80, the second was earlier this month at the Chase Bank along Douglas Boulevard. Then on Tuesday, he robbed the same bank along Del Paso Road.
A second man helped in the second robbery, and other possible accomplices have been seen in the Bad Hatter Bandit’s getaway car. The car used in each robbery has been different, and each one reported stolen.
