SAN DIEGO (CN) – A 27-year-old man was sentenced to nearly 5 years in federal prison for five bank robberies from which he got a grand total of $10,462 – an average of $2,092.40 a heist.
Miguel Dario Florez was dubbed the Chameleon Bandit because he changed his appearance each time. He hits Wells Fargo Banks for $5,136 and Bank of America for $5,326 during a two-week spree in May and June 2009.
A Chula Vista police officer arrested him on a city bus after getting a description of him on June 2. The officer found a note in Florez’s pocket that said, “This is a bank robbery. Give me all of the money from your drawer. No ink bombs and no GPS,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in announcing the 57-month sentence.
