NEW YORK (AP) – A man suspected of robbing banks in New York City and Los Angeles has been arrested.
Police say the man known as the “Coast to Coast Bandit,” 50-year-old Jon Waulters, of Brooklyn, was arrested in New York Wednesday afternoon.
Police say he robbed a bank in Manhattan after leaving another nearby bank empty-handed. He was taken into custody a short time later.
The FBI says Waulters also is linked to a robbery in April at a bank on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
In that crime, the robber presented a teller a note with threats involving a gun and a knife. Witnesses said he had a possible sunburn and was wearing a New York Yankees cap.
It’s unclear if Waulters has an attorney who can comment on the robbery charges.
