A man called the "Bare Arm Bandit" by police in Southern California is believed to be responsible for two bank robberies in two weeks in Orange County.
The so-called "Bare Arm Bandit" is accused of robbing a Wells Fargo in Santa Ana on June 7 and another Wells Fargo in the same town on June 16.
The FBI and police warn that the bank thief could be carrying a weapon.
He's about 25 years old, 6 feet tall, "muscular" and "unshaven," according to an FBI statement.
During the stickups he appeared impatient, according to the FBi's description, and simulated to bank employees that he was carrying a weapon stuck in his waistband.
