Man Arrested for Attempted Robberies at Two West Hollywood Banks

A man wanted in two bank robberies  in West Hollywood was arrested Thursday.

Deputies from the L.A. County Sheriff’s West Hollywood Station responded at 4:49 p.m. to the 8900 block of Santa Monica Boulevard at Robertson Boulevard, for a report of a robbery at a branch of Chase bank..

The suspect entered the bank, simulated a gun and handed a note to a teller but left the location without any money, according to Deputy Trina Schrader.

The second robbery was reported about an hour later at the Bank  of America branch in the 8600 block of Beverly Boulevard near San Vicente Boulevard. A man matching the same description as the suspect in the first robbery simulated a weapon and handed a note.

In the second robbery, the suspect left the location with an undisclosed amount of money, Schrader said.

A deputy saw the suspect about 20 minutes later while conducting a search of the area and detained him. The man, whose name was not immediately released, was arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Notice the correlation between increased crime, drugs being legalized and tolerated, and increased liberalism? IT’S NOT A COINCIDENCE, PEOPLE.

Until California and it’s municipalities make crime illegal again, an increase in crime will continue. Solution: out with Moon Beam Jerry Brown and all the libtards who are ruining this state.

Not until then will America once again be great. Good luck to the sheriff deputies and police officers who have to work in this ridiculous environment. We appreciate you all.
