Suspect at large after robbing U.S. Bank in Chester
Wednesday, May 27, 2015 — A man armed with a dark semi-automatic handgun of unknown caliber walked into the Chester branch of U.S. Bank on Monday morning, May 18, and made off with more than $75,000.
The suspect matched the description of a serial bank robber on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
The man, dubbed the “Bad Breath Bandit” for committing his crimes while wearing a disposable paper facemask, entered the Chester bank about 11:25 a.m.
According to Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, the armed robber used the gun to threaten employees and gain access to the bank’s vault.
