first_imgBank photos taken during the robbery show a gray-haired man dressed in a white pinstriped shirt and black dress slacks, aviator glasses hanging at the collar, joking with the tellers. Wanted by police agencies in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, the last time he robbed a bank was early this week in Westlake Village, the FBI said. The Irreconcilable Differences Bandit was named after he robbed the first bank Dec. 22 in Beverly Hills and told the teller he was going through a divorce and needed help wiring the money. The bandit then handed the teller a note demanding money with a verbal threat that he had a gun or bomb. In at least one robbery, a witness reported the man had brandished a revolver. The 14 robberies include two banks in Encino and one in Sherman Oaks. He has also been linked to a Dec. 14 street robbery in Beverly Hills. He is described as clean-shaven, between 45 and 55 years old, between 5-8 and 5-9, with sandy or salt-and-pepper hair, worn short.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
