Detectives from the Major Crimes Bureau at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have asked for the public's help in spotting a unique getaway car used by a prolific bank robber who's hit in Santa Clarita, Santa Barbara, and most recently, Santa Maria.
The metallic gold or champagne color Chrysler PT Cruiser was recorded on security video near the scene of a holdup, and the images show it has distinctive, after-market chrome wheels.
FBI agents have called the man the, "Seasoned Bandit," because he appears to be in his 50s or 60s, though the Sheriff's detectives say the name fits for another reason -- the man seems to have the experience of an ex-con or an ex-cop.
In each of the 10 holdups since April the man has presented bank tellers with a demand note that threatens he has a gun, though no weapon has been seen.
The man has been careful to never leave the note behind.
Anyone with information was asked to call the FBI's Los Angeles Field Office at (310) 477-6565, or 911 if the subject or vehicle is spotted.
